Who are we?

Nordic Wood Shavings guarantees excellent performance Animal bedding & horse bedding. Our wood shavings for horses are soft but tensile, meaning they don’t break apart or turn into dust like so many other brands – our wood shavings really are of the highest quality and make for the finest horse bedding.
The products produced at our timber milling facility in St Leonards on sea, East Sussex are sustainably sourced from PEFC/FSC certified Scandinavian forests.

Ashdown Forest Riding for the Disabled
Ali Remmen has been running The Ashdown Forest Riding School for the Disabled for the last ten years. It is a self-funded registered charity providing a range of pony experiences for the disabled. Disabilities range from autism, cerebral palsy and downs syndrome. Activities include pony riding, horse care, grooming, stable management and even competitions. These experiences help members gain confidence and independence as well as having a great time!
When asked why the school uses Nordic Bales Ali said “The bales are always good quality, give excellent coverage, are easy breakup and good value. We can leave a ridge of shavings around the edge of the stables making it easy to rake down for new, clean coverage. The bales have a lovely smell, which is nice for the members and mucking out is easy and quick. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nordic Bales for anyone with stables”.
Hurstwood Feeds Ltd
Hurstwood Feeds are based in Coppers Green, Buxted near Uckfield. They are a retail outlet providing animal foodstuffs and bedding mainly to stables, horse and pet owners. The business is run by Elaine Maybury who has gained a lot of experience in the equine industry and can advise on the best and most appropriate products for her customers needs.
Hurstwood Feeds have been using Nordic Bales since they were introduced and Elaine recommends them for the following reasons “ they are a good quality bale, reasonably priced and feedback from customers has always been very positive. There is always good availability and deliveries are prompt which is important when you are running a retail shop”
Baldwins Equestrian Competition and Rehabilitation Yard
Run by Rebecca Duggleby, Baldwins Equestrian is a competition and rehabilitation yard for ponies and horses. Open for three and half years, Rebecca started with the philosophy: ‘if you want things done properly, do it yourself’ The yard offers rehabilitation for horses that need careful treatment to get them back to full health. Conditions can include owner mistreatment and recovery from major operations such as kissing spines. Horses that have been treated include show jumpers, race horses and weekend hacks. The nearest centre offering a similar service is in Buckinghamshire so Rebecca hasn’t needed to advertise as all her business has come via word of mouth or direct from vets. Rebecca also competes regularly at Hickstead with her stallion and colt.
The horses were originally on straw but Rebecca found that not only were the horses eating the straw but it was messy, had to be changed a lot so wasn’t very cost effective. Since she changed to Nordic Bales the bedding can be laid for a thick and very comfortable bed or arranged for corner bedding. The shavings are easy to manage and maintain. Disposal has become much easier because it compacts and takes up less space which has allowed take away to increase to every two years.
