5 Horses in training spend most of their time in their stables, which means that the quality of the bedding you provide can have a significant impact on their health, fitness and performance. We began researching and developing BEDMAX Shavings in 1998 for trainers who understand the damage that airborne dust and spores in bedding can cause to a horse’s respiratory health. But we also make BEDMAX to create a bedding that helps safeguard your horses from the other factors that can threaten their health and wellbeing in the stable.


SHAVINGS PURPOSE MADE FOR RACEHORSES

...starts in the stable 1 Respiratory Health

Airborne dust and spores in the stable are the biggest danger to your horses’ health and performance, and bedding is often the worst source. We screen out and vaccuum extract dust and spores to eliminate this threat from BEDMAX Shavings.

3 Hygiene

To help create a naturally hygienic environment, BEDMAX shavings are made from fresh pine timber, which has uniquely powerful antibacterial properties, and dried at sterilising temperatures.

2 Hoofcare

Keeping throughbred hooves healthy is a problem. BEDMAX Shavings are dried to a computer-controlled moisture content to prevent hooves drying and cracking, and our shavings give ideal support under the frog.

5 Ammonia

It is now recognised that ammonia can cause respiratory damage as well as hoof disease. BEDMAX Shavings drain urine down from the surface away from contact with hooves and lungs, and we believe pine may reduce ammonia production.

6 Comfort & Rest

4 Hocks & Joints BEDMAX Shavings are cut larger to form a deeper, more resilient bed that helps cushion hocks and joints from injury when horses lie down or roll.

Horses in hard work need to lie down to achieve REM sleep. BEDMAX Shavings create a deep, dry, comfortable bed that encourages horses to lie down safely and rest properly.

Dengie Alfa-A Oil by Dengie Horse Feeds A chopped alfalfa feed with a high level of added oil – has the same energy level as many competition mixes but with, on average, 10 times less starch. WHY USE DENGIE ALFA-A OIL? A safe way to promote condition and muscle tone – ideal for poor doers, fizzy horses and those prone to muscle problems. Alfalfa is a natural buffer to acidity which makes Alfa-A Oil ideal for feeding alongside cereal based feeds. It also increases chew time to promote better utilisation of the feed and generates more saliva – the horse’s own buffering system. The alfalfa in Alfa-A Oil is dried at a high temperature to produce a very clean forage. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Oil has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting respiratory health especially in performance and racehorses. The road to a yard of healthier horses Certification Mark starts with adding Alfa-A Oil!

KEY INGREDIENTS: Alfalfa, Rapeseed Oil

GastroKind by Science Supplements GastroKind can be fed to all horses during or following veterinary treatment to help encourage a healthy stomach environment and is a natural alternative to maintain a healthy gut. WHY USE GASTROKIND? Winner of the International Innovation Awards 2017 GastroKind is a natural, nutritional formula developed by the leading veterinary scientists, nutritionists and vets. The unique formula promotes a healthy gastric environment, soothes the stomach walls, helps control acidity and supports the natural anti-inflammatory processes in the gut. The Judging Panel commented: “This product has met NOPS and UFAS standards and its ingredient list is transparent. It has clinical examples of it being successfully used by horse owners under the direction of vets, alongside medical treatment” GastroKind is the result of seven years research. Thirty (30) 2 year old racehorses in a single barn and under the same management were fed GastroKind. Result: At the end of the feeding period the veterinary surgeon reported that Gut Health was significantly better in the barn of horses who had

been fed GastroKind compared with the other barn of 2-year old racehorses on an identical management programme, but without the supplement. Based on these positive findings additional research was undertaken and a further clinical trial was then conducted in association with a Veterinary Clinic and involved Gastroscopy. The clinical findings support the fact that GastroKind supports a healthy stomach environment.

KEY INGREDIENTS: Award Winning and unique formula including: Ficus Glomerata, Apple Pectin & Lecithin, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, MgOH – Magnesium hydroxide, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium.

WHY USE FLEXABILITY PLUS+? FlexAbility PLUS+ is the highest specification joint supplement available in the UK and the only joint supplement with two clinical and scientific studies and with a published, peer reviewed paper in The Journal of Equine Veterinary Science.

The highlights are: • Individual horses on FlexAbility improved up to 2/10 grades. • FlexAbility was associated with significantly improved range of motion and muscle tone.

• With FlexAbility, horses were graded significantly higher for “ease of movement”.

Movability

- Intelligent Joint Care by Lincoln Equestrian Movability is an exciting new supplement that uses a scientifically developed, natural formulation to maintain equine joints and mobility for optimum individual performance. WHY USE MOVABILITY? Formulated in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, Movability was scientifically developed with the objective to maintain performance in equine athletes performing strenuous exercise and to support them as they advance into their veteran years. Rich in the micronutrients resveratrol and curcumin, Movability innovatively utilises these two nutraceuticals at optimal levels with the aim to support joint function and promote career longevity. Resveratrol is a naturally-occurring chemical found in red grape skins and other plants that has undergone detailed scientific studies for its anti-inflammatory benefits, whilst curcumin, also anti-inflammatory, is a component present in turmeric (the spice of life), part of the ginger genus of plants. Movability innovatively utilises these two substances at the most optimum ratio to help to promote and maintain healthy joints and muscles. This innovative natural formulation is gentle on the stomach and contains aniseed for increased palatability and to support digestive function.

KEY INGREDIENTS: A scientific formulation that combines the beneficial properties of two naturally occurring substances – resveratrol (extracted from red grapes) and curcumin (component of the turmeric plant).

FEEDING GUIDE: Easy to feed, palatable powder formulation which is also economical with a 1kg tub supplying a 550kg horse for approx. 50 days. Feed once daily, administration dosage: • Ponies under 300kg > 10g (1 scoop) • Horses 300kg – 600kg > 20g (2 scoops) • Horses over 600kg > 30g (3 scoops) Formulated to be administered on a long term, daily basis for ongoing joint maintenance.

Complete Electrolytes by Science Supplements Fully balanced electrolyte supplement containing the 5 key electrolytes with Micro Encapsulation Technology means it dissolves in the small intestine where electrolyte uptake is optimal, and is both palatable and gentle on the stomach unlike ordinary electrolytes. WHY USE COMPLETE ELECTROLYTES?

KEY INGREDIENTS:

The only electrolytes using Micro Encapsulation Technology and containing the 5 major electrolytes: sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium in proportion to the amounts lost during exercise. One litre of horse sweat contains around 3.5g of sodium, 6g of chloride, 1.2g of potassium and 0.1g of calcium.

Containing the 5 key electrolytes: • Sodium • Chloride • Potassium • Calcium • Magnesium

A horse can easily lose 5 litres of sweat each hour on a normal day at a moderate pace which equates to the loss of around 50g of electrolytes. This amount would not be replaced by the horse’s normal daily hay and hard feed alone.

With its role in tissue elasticity it has an important role to play in the performance horse. Show Horses & Sales Prep - Copper enhances skin and hair condition and, when fed alongside Kentucky Karron Oil, will produce a natural sheen and depth of colour.

KEY INGREDIENTS: • Chelated Copper – required for the healthy development and integrity of connective tissue as well as being required for bone development. • Chelated Manganese – involved in the synthesis of chondroitin sulphate and therefore important for healthy joints. • Vitamin E – a key antioxidant. • Biotin – important to maintain healthy hoof horn growth. • Vitamin B12 – promotes red blood cell formation.

Baileys Foal Assist & Baileys Foal Assist Plus by Baileys Horse Feeds A blend of vitamins and trace minerals designed for suckling foals, to supplement the dam’s milk. Also contains B vitamins which can help stimulate appetite in the older equine. WHY USE BAILEYS FOAL ASSIST & BAILEYS FOAL ASSIST PLUS? • Scientifically formulated for suckling foals, to supplement the micronutrient levels of the dam’s milk, particularly when she is producing large volumes of milk of poor nutritional quality. • Also suitable for rapidly growing foals and supplies the additional nutritional support they need but without the carbohydrates found in traditional creep feeds. • Can help to reduce the incidence of nutritionrelated growth problems which are often due to the natural decline in the quality of a mare’s milk.

FEEDING GUIDE: • Foal Assist paste is easily administered to suckling foals at a rate of 2cc per 45kg of bodyweight. Those under 3 months of age requiring more condition should be given Foal Creep Pellets. For every 0.5kg of Foal Creep Pellets consumed, reduce the Foal Assist given by 2cc. • Foal Assist Plus liquid can be given by syringe or 10ml per 100kg bodyweight can be mixed with feed. The additional macro minerals and B vitamins in Foal Assist Plus make it ideal for mature equines who are not consuming the full recommended amount of an appropriate compound feed or balancer and the B vitamins can help stimulate appetite.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

WHERE IS IT AVAILABLE?
