Horse bedding survey results


In the below video Dr David Marlin discusses the bedding survey results which he promised to give everyone who took part and is now releasing to the public for a limited time. After running the survey and speaking to members of 12 horse beddings were selected and sent to the laboratory and INDEPENDENTLY tested – the results were surprising! In some circumstances, the survey feedback and the actual lab test results were very different.  If you want accurate data and not just opinion, we would highly recommend that you look at the lab results:

That independent lab testing looked at:

  • Dust
  • Hygienic quality
  • Absorbency
  • Coverage/value for money
  • Manufacturers claims vs performance.

If you only want to see the survey results based on general public opinion then please click on the video below but please be aware, the survey and the actual lab data when we testing the bedding were very different!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey.
