How to Use Equisorb
You need fewer Equisorb bales per week than any other bedding type
One Of The Most Cost Effective Horse Bedding Solutions
Equisorb represents far better value for money and substantially lower costs to you than any other bedding type.
When establishing a new bed, Equisorb is ideally applied to a clean floor at the rate of approx. 1 bale per m2. If on rubber matting, not all the area need be covered at this rate. Do not worry if your new Equisorb bed moves slightly when initially installed as the bed will quickly settle to form a long-lasting firm base.
Due to its superior absorbency Equisorb is ideal and economical for use with rubber mats and is applied at the rate of approx ½ bale per m².

Changing Over To Equisorb From Existing Bedding
Managing Your Equisorb Bed
Remove droppings regularly, with rubber gloves or fork. Droppings will become easier to remove as the bed becomes established. Only remove wet material once or twice a week, topping up with sides or banks, and then top up sides with fresh material. Use a bedding fork to rake over surface, giving the bed a fresh, level finish whilst not disturbing the under-part of the bed.
Putting Down Your Equisorb Horse Bed in a 9 – 12 sqm Box
Solid Floor: 7 – 8 bales
Empty bales on floor, carefully tread down, add water if preferred, to establish as firm a base to the bed as possible. The bed will move a little initially, but will settle within 7/10 days. Settled depth needs to be 8” (20 cm).
Rubber Matting: 5 – 7 bales
Aim to cover at least half the total area to a depth of 6” to 8” (15-20cm). The bed will settle well in 7/10 days but must have a good depth in order to absorb the wet. Brushing the rubber matting up to the bed line will give the bed a firm edge.
