Bedmax is proud to have been chosen as the official supplier of shavings for the horses competing at the Defender Blair Castle Horse Trials between the 22nd and 25th August this summer.

Scotland’s most prestigious equestrian event joins the many leading international horse trials that choose Bedmax shavings to safeguard the health and welfare of the world class horses in their care, including Badminton, Chatsworth, Gatcombe Park, Bramham and Burghley.
