Vida Stable Bedding and Vida Stable Pellets
A natural choice Good for your horse. Good for the environment.
For many years, Vida has been supplying high-quality stable bedding and stable pellets to horse owners throughout southern Sweden. Our stable bedding is very popular with horse owners and is also used in other animal husbandry.
Vida Stable Bedding is made of wood shavings that are cleaned of dust, and are particularly good for performance horses and horses with respiratory problems. Vida Stable Pellets were created for horse stalls and other stable environments.
Vida’s natural animal bedding is optimal for hygiene and cleanliness in stable environments. The bedding is made from wood shavings from our own sawmills, cleaned of dust and completely free of chemical additives and treated timber. It is made from renewable Swedish forest raw materials, predominantly fir. Good for animals, good for the environment.
Many people within Swedish horse-riding and trotting use Vida Stable Bedding. Peter Untersteiner, one of Sweden’s leading horse trainers is one such person.

How to bed your horse stall with stable pellets
Vida Stable Pellets are a quality product that are suitable for use in horse stalls and other stable environments. Here’s how you use stable pellets:
1. Empty the contents of the sack and spread out the pellets in an empty stall.
2. The pellets should cover the entire floor surface.
3. Pour water directly onto the pellets. Wait until the pellets start to swell, they should become 3 – 4 times their original volume.
4. Use a pitchfork or similar to spread them out in the stall.
Alternatively: Pour water directly into the pellet sack. Thereafter proceed as above.
Estimated consumption of stable pellets for one horse stall
Estimate approx 7 – 8 sacks and 5 – 10 litres of water per sack for a stall of around 10m2 the first time you fill it. Thereafter, add pellets and water as needed.
