HiPoint HPAB benefits of reusable horse bedding

Removing the Myths -

Why your Horse will love our bedding.

HiPoint focused on four elements to produce the most sustainable horse bedding in the world.

  • Dust-free bedding    - better for lungs, horse cough, and the barn environment
  • Hypoallergenic          - anti-bacterial, safe for all, protecting horse health
  • High absorption        - less smell, less runoff
  • Horse comfort.         - see your horse relax, lie down, or simply enjoy our bedding

In addition:

  • We clean the bedding under heat, steam, and infusion making, what we think, a much better bedding than regular bedding.
  • The natural infusion has undergone monographs and verified safe by VHP international standards to allow for some terrific benefits.  - We use the N4L* base compound infused into our bedding to protect the horse and rider under a proprietary microfuzed process.
  • Fewer critters in your barn - Our infusion base compound repel mice, snakes & flies so your barn is safer & cleaner, being less spooky to the horses. For our love of all things - it does not hurt the critters - just repels them not to come close. 
  • Better Breathing - Our infusion base compound was designed to help open the pathways, and help colic and digestion. University trials showed the horses having more open lung pathways - see more on that below.
  • More Healing - It helps with pain and protects, proven to heal hoof rot, hives, and muscle strains.
  • Horse Comfort -  We found less ammonia smell in the barn, horses laid down in their stall, reduced hoof-rot, and better horse comfort for horses bedded on our HiPoint performance bedding.
  • Size & Color - Whatever comes out of the stall, plus some fresh bedding locally purchased goes back into our process - so whatever goes in comes out. Large flakes in - Large Flakes out - White shavings in / White shavings out. You get the idea.

 

* N4L has bottled the base compound and given each product a 'kick' to address the core issue specifically, for those times when a little extra is needed. Read more here

 

Do we give up anything to give you reusable bedding?

Through the cleaning heating and separation process and the fact it comes from the stall, your bedding will be a few shades of off-white. Due to the fact we process everything, you see some darker wood chips from the heating process, and sometimes some inert macro-heated and infused hay strands get through - don't worry, the horse won't eat them. But they will love our bedding. Finally, we prefer to give you mixed-size shaving to improve absorbency - however, our super screens can offer our customers only large flakes. - Let your horse decide. We can produce both - on-demand - locally repurposed - and locally used again and again.

Due to our careful patented process, our bedding goes through we then tracked back with a bag of shavings that were not in a stall. We found the recycled; sustainable bedding had the same depth (and in our tests a little more) than the original. Proving that we can use shavings, trampled by horses, used overnight, clean out, and brought to us to be re-purposed did not affect the quality and performance and coverage in a stall.

More coverage
