Winter means more time spent indoors for your horses, leading to increased bedding usage. Our Bedding Blocker is a custom engineered brush system that fits perfectly in your horse stall door openings. It acts as a barrier to keep shavings inside the stall and hallways clean.

The integrity of your barn's Aisle Entry Doors, Dutch Doors, and Barn Windows is never more tested than in cold, harsh weather.

This time of year is the perfect time to inspect your existing barn doors, Dutch doors, and barn windows to ensure their structural integrity is intact.
Hydration is key all around the year for riders and horses alike. While hydration is a hot topic for our horses in the Summer months, it is equally importantly during colder months.
