Strapped for cash but still want the best for your horse? Belvoir Bed could be your answer! As Belvoir Bed only sells to customers direct it enables prices to be kept to an absolute minimum, and with prices starting at just £4.90 (excluding vat) you can have fantastic bedding at a fraction of the cost!
Though initially it may not seem financially viable to purchase a pallet of bedding at one time the considerable savings mean that long term you can be saving almost 20% of your bedding costs per year. Every penny saved is a penny earned, and with stabled hours on the increase over the winter and the average price of shavings being over £7 it’s the perfect time to try something different!
Belvoir Bed is a simple way to save money and retain quality this winter and after the last few years of snow filled winters, can you risk being stuck without bedding or having to pay over the odds at the feed merchant?
Based on 4 bales to set up and an average of one bale per week, Belvoir Bed can cost you as little as £322 for the year including VAT. When compared to the cost of an average bale of shavings that would be a saving of at least £70! Times that by ten for a bigger yard and you could be looking at saving £700!
Not only is Belvoir bed cost effective, it is also quick rotting and easy to muck out and with its unique natural treatment of lemongrass and cade oil, the cosy bedding provides antibacterial and antifungal properties ensuring your horse’s stable is as hygienic as possible. The state of the art dust extraction process renders Belvoir Bed almost dust free and is ideal for performance horses or those suffering from respiratory conditions.

Belvoir Bed is fast becoming one of the most popular bedding products to use on yards across the country and this isn’t solely due to an economical aspect. Using Belvoir Bed ensures peace of mind that horses are stabled in the most hygienic environment possible and thanks to the inclusion of a new and improved natural formula, the benefits just got better!
Belvoir Bed is made from a mix of wheat and rape straw, which works together to provide exceptionally absorbent bedding in traditional form. The raw material is passed through a state of the art dust extraction process to produce a clean and virtually dust free bedding which is ideal for performance horses and those suffering from respiratory problems.
Belvoir Bed has now re-formulated its existing treatment, which uses a natural, organic formulation to give ‘added extras’ and enhance the benefits of the cosy, traditional bedding. The principle ingredients are Lemongrass - a non-toxic and non-irritant plant offering a pleasant lemon smell without the potency of citronella - and Cade Oil, which helps retain this fresh aroma.
Both ingredients combine together to offer antiseptic, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties which helps repel insects, fight against bacteria and reduce moulds and spores. This exclusive formula is ideal for all yards especially larger establishments to help keep viruses at bay – such as flu and strangles - and can help keep equines content and free from insects and flies.
Belvoir Bed is quick rotting, easy to muck out and comfortable for your horse. Prices start at £4.90 + vat, Belvoir Bed can only be ordered direct enabling prices to be kept to an absolute minimum. To find out more information tel: 01254 677 786 or visit: www.belvoirbed.co.uk

We have had a very busy month and have had lots of encouraging results to report, we took 4 of the horses down to Hickstead at the end of June to do some fine tuning. Maisie and Amber both jumped double clears in the 1m 25, special well done to Amber who did this 2 days running.
Imp also proved he enjoyed the show jumping outing, with a well deserved 13th in the 1m 10 out of a class of 80. Maisie and Imp also jumped double clear in the foxhunter and Columbo didn’t let the side down with a double clear in the 1metre. It’s always good to get them jumping clear at a big event like this with the bigger atmosphere, this helps keep them focused on the fences and not worry about everything else that’s going on around them.
My next event was Eridge, which is lovely and local to us, we were really pleased with Columbo III, who was placed 6th in the BE100 5year old section. An honest boy with so much scope.
We were then home for just a few days and then loaded a total of 7 horses in the lorry and headed for Barbury International. This is a great event which we always look forward to.
For such a big event Columbo III was a star, he settled well and felt ready for the job in hand. For such a young horse he really enjoys his work and came 3rd in the 5yr old young event horse class and has now qualified for Burghley. Romeo Z put in a solid performance in the 2* which placed him 21st and Chaitaigne Filice was 4th in the 2*.
Just Maisie was double clear in the 3* and came 28th out of 130, we were really pleased as the field was full of strong combinations and team horses; she was by far the least experienced. We are really excited about what the future holds for Maisie A special mention has to be made for the lovely Billy Limmerick who did his very first event, he was entered into the 4 year old young event horse at Barbury and didn’t disappoint. He did a great little dressage test and also got a very good 9 for his confirmation. Although not top ten this time round he was such a pleasure to ride and have on as part of the team.
Jasper is due to be rescanned tomorrow, so please keep your fingers and toes crossed. At the moment he is back in light work and seems fine, so we are eager to see what the vet says tomorrow.

By utilising a by-product from the farming industry, straw - a traditional raw material - has been brought in to the 21st century through the use of a modern chopping process.
Belvoir Bed is exceptionally absorbent due to its short fibres, which enable it to soak up large quantities of urine quickly; this means there is a reduced risk of smelly liquid sitting on your bedding and in turn reduces ammonia levels. In addition, the comfortable bedding product is virtually dust free after being passed through a rigorous dust extraction process, ensuring it is safe to use with all horses and ponies, including those suffering from respiratory compromise.
Belvoir Bed uses a natural, organic formulation to add extra benefits to the already effective bedding. The principal ingredient in this formulation is Lemongrass which is a non toxic and non irritant plant offering a pleasant lemon smell without the potency of citronella. On top of this the formula has powerful anti-fungal properties to help reduce moulds and spores, whilst also offering antiseptic benefits to help protect against contagious disease. This carefully created formula makes Belvoir Bed ideal for all yards especially larger establishments to help keep viruses at bay – such as flu and strangles - and can help keep equines content and free from insects and flies.
With prices from £4.90 + vat, Belvoir Bed is quick rotting, easy to muck out and comfortable for your horse. Belvoir Bed can only be ordered direct enabling prices to be kept to an absolute minimum.

Belvoir Bed is the perfect solution to helping soothe summer sniffles! Not only is the chopped straw product absorbent and easy to muck out, but it has been put through a vigorous dust extraction process to remove moulds and spores, which if left in the surrounding area, can be potentially fatal to an equine suffering from respiratory compromise.
Belvoir Bed is also treated with an exclusive, natural and organic formula. The principal ingredient in Belvoir Bed’s natural formulation is Lemongrass which is a powerful anti-fungal agent which helps reduce the levels of moulds and spores as well as offering anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties to help protect against contagious diseases and viruses. For horses and ponies with an already weakened immune this is a simple, yet significant step towards helping keep their environment clean, hygienic and safe.
Lemongrass is totally non toxic and non irritant making it the perfect choice for sensitive equines, while the anti-insecticidal properties provide excellent insect repelling properties without the use of citronella or harsh chemicals.
With prices starting at just £4.90 (+ vat) per bale, Belvoir Bed is quick rotting, cost effective and easy to use. Belvoir Bed can only be ordered direct at a minimum quantity of 35 bales. To find out more information tel: 01254 677 786 or visit: www.belvoirbed.co.uk
