An average stable size 12 x 12 will require approximately 8 bags depending on your preferences. If you prefer large banks or do not use rubber mats you should add more bags to compensate.
Once you’ve laid the pellets, add 5-7 litres of water per bag — approx. half a bucket. (This could be done with a hose pipe if easier). Alternatively if your prefer you can cut open all the bags and fold back the plastic, slowly pour the water into the opening leaving the pellets to swell for 15-20 mins. Once pellets have transformed into a soft, dry, absorbent bedding empty out onto the stable floor, spreading out evenly and making up any required banks.
You shouldn’t need to add any more bedding for the next week or so.
Going forward once you have converted to Pegasus Horse Bedding, a typical stable will require 1 to 2 bags of bedding roughly every week.
Pegasus can be bought in 3 pack sizes, with our starter pack of 16 bags coming with a free pellet rake.
