Bedmax at the 2023 Burghley Horse Trials

Bedmax Shavings are proud to be helping keep the horses healthy in the Defender Burghley Horse Trials stables again in 2023

First chosen in 2007 as the bedding for the horses competing at Burghley, Bedmax Shavings will be helping to keep the stables comfortable and healthy once again at this year’s Defender Burghley Horse Trials.

Bedmax is proud to be supplying the bedding for many of the world’s leading event horses at Burghley, chosen by the organisers specifically for the assurance of quality, minimal dust, and the support that encourages equine athletes to lie down and rest properly after a strenuous day competing at the highest level.

Commenting Martyn Johnson Event Director Burghley Horse Trials said:

“We’re delighted to have Bedmax as Defender Burghley’s official supplier of equine bedding for the event. Burghley and Bedmax have enjoyed a long and successful association; the comfort of horses competing at Defender Burghley is, of course, of great importance to us, and Bedmax products help ensure that.”

For Bedmax MD, Tim Smalley, Burghley is the landmark finale to the season of world class British three day events that choose Bedmax for their horses.

“It’s a real privilege to be involved in a small way in this extraordinary event. Defender Burghley  a showcase of British equestrian excellence, and from the moment we started making Bedmax 23 years ago we have always aimed to produce a bedding that lived up to the standards Burghley epitomises. The fact that the organisers choose our shavings for their CCI5*, competitors is the best proof we could ask for that we’re getting it right, and I hope very much that Bedmax will help all the horses and riders and the teams that support them perform at their very best.”

Bedmax shavings are also the official choice of bedding for many of the biggest occasions in the eventing calendar, including Badminton and Blenheim, Bramham, Burnham Market, Floors Castle and Gatcombe Park. So the distinctive yellow bags are well-known to the leading eventers, and to many of the thousands of spectators who make Burghley one of the most popular equestrian sporting venues in the UK.

The Bedmax team will be hoping to meet as many visitors as possible on the Bedmax stand at Burghley, and offering the chance to win a full pallet of Bedmax or Littlemax shavings, or the company’s latest Strawmax straw pellet bedding.
