HempBedz is available direct from us or from one of our distributors – you can find a list on the Distributors page of this website, or if you prefer to buy direct please contact us for current prices and delivery information. Dust extracted hay and straw are also available from us or our distributors packed in heat-sealed bales for your convenience.
HempBedz is made from natural hemp shiv, the woody core of the hemp plant. When separated from the external fibre hemp shiv gives a highly absorbent bedding. HempBedz is an ideal replacement for straw, paper or shavings for all pets, horses, and poultry. HempBedz is suitable for deep litter beds and for use in stables with rubber mats.
- Highly absorbent
- Dust extracted
- Easy to handle
- Environmentally friendly
- Odour reducing
HempBedz is capable of absorbing more liquid than wood shavings or straw, making the bed stay drier for longer.
Because HempBedz is dust-extracted it is kind to your animal’s respiratory system. HempBedz is not acidic so less likely to irritate your pet’s eyes, as shavings and other bedding materials can. In addition, animal odours will be reduced as HempBedz absorbs ammonia and other animal smells.
How to use HempBedz for Horses
If starting with a clean stable you will need 6-8 bales of HemBedz for a 12′ x 12′ stable.
If starting from an existing bed do not clean out all your previous bedding (as this is a waste) but use fresh HemBedz round the outside of your stable. As your old bedding becomes soiled remove in the normal way.
Once all old bedding is used, continue as above – you will then notice how much longer HempBedz lasts! From this point disturb the bed as little as possible, remove droppings daily and wet patches every three to five days. Top up with fresh HempBedz as required.
The average requirement for one horse is half to one bale per week.
Thought I’d send you this funny photo of our Shetland pony, Rosie. She had a little sedation when having her teeth cleaned and we used a bag of bedding to hold her head up.
“Just to let you know order came early on Wednesday so that was good and I’ve just changed the first of 3 stables from shavings today…..I can’t believe how much better the hemp is, no dust, smells great and easy to move around, just annoyed I didn’t change sooner lol! I have a Connemara pony who has had laminitis in the past and his feet get sore, the hemp is much better underfoot! I used 7 bales for a large stable, will defo be buying more, thanks!”

“Nick at HempBedz was brilliant to deal with and answered all my questions. I ordered my pallet on the Friday and Wednesday afternoon it was with me! 2 bales down in the stable; no dust, soft, smells nice and hasn’t moved about.”
“The horses are loving their Hempbedz. I’ve never seen the horses lying down so much and all at the time since we changed to your hemp bedding proving it must be very comfortable for them. Also would like to say the muck cart only needs emptying once a week now since we changed to hemp. A great product to put on the floor of the horsebox for travelling we get two or three trips out of it before having to put new in. Great stuff to work with”
