With a wealth of practical experience in looking after our own horses we recognise the importance in providing adequate, safe and comfortable bedding. The Acadami range has been developed to meet the needs of the horse owning fraternity regardless of which sector they are in.
Our equestrian bedding products are manufactured from virgin softwoods to the highest industry standards. Working from sustainable sources of clean and dry wood we produce bedding that offers a number of significant advantages to horse owners of all types.
Our products are biodegradable and will rot down quickly on the muck heap to create a well-balanced nutrition rich-compost. Wood shaving bedding creates an environment that helps improve rest, support hooves and reduce bruising to hocks and other joints. We supply many of Ireland’s premier horse-racing yards, show-jumping yards, and have Bord Bia product liability insurance. Our products are available in convenient moisture protected bales or as more cost effective bulk loads, starting from 6 tonnes. Bales are delivered on shrink wrapped on pallets of 36/42 units.
