We specialise in manufacturing the highest quality, purpose-made horse bedding from local, British straw.

100% British straw

We have full traceability on every bale that enters our production facility, and we keep our carbon footprint as low as possible by sourcing most of our straw from local farmers.

Broom and dust icon

Low dust bedding

Our investment in a unique vacuum de-dusting process, which we perform twice on each bale, means our bedding products have very low levels of dust, for a healthy stable environment.

Sustainable bedding

New bale packaging

In 2021 we branded the packaging of our popular Sundown Green and Sundown Yellow chopped straw bedding products, to make them easier to find in retail stores.

In 2023 we developed a new-shape bale that’s easier to handle and uses less plastic in the packaging.

Eucalyptus fragrance

In 1998, Sundown was the first manufacturer to add eucalyptus fragrance to its horse bedding products, to improve the stable environment. It is still a key feature of our Sundown Green and Sundown Yellow bedding products and our customers often remark on how much they love the fresh scent of their bedding and how clean their horse’s stable smells.

Straw pellet innovation

In 2019 we launched Sun-e-bed, a new low-dust, soft straw pellet which makes mucking out a breeze. This 100% straw pellet bedding is easier to handle, store, and dispose of – and highly absorbent.

No need to water Sunebed just spread evenly across the floor and let it do it’s magic. Starting a new stable we recommend using about 6 bags so that it can fluff up to a good depth but if using as an absorbent base under chopped straw just 1 or 2 bags should do the job.#horse #horsesofinstagram #horsebedding #horsebeddingpremium #straw #strawpellets #strawpelletbedding #sundownequine #muckingoutmadeeasy

☀️Sunebed☀️straw pellets break down into fibres, so the bed fluffs and increases in depth as it starts to work. These straw fibres are not airborne, which reduces dust and lock in wet and odour. All this makes for a comfortable and clean stable for your horse that is quick and easy to muck out as wet patches are simple to locate and droppings lie on the surface.#horsebedding #horsebeddingpremium #sundownequine #horsecare #muckingoutmadeeasy #strawpellets #strawpelletbedding #strawpellethorsebedding
