1) Empty the stall of old material.

2) Fill the stall to preferred depth with cardboard bedding.

        3m x 3m stall to a depth of 10cm  ---  5 bales

        4m x 4m stall to a depth of 10cm  ---  6 bales

3) When mucking out

    a. Pick up droppings with a muck rake as usual or use rubber gloves.

    b. Flick the dry bedding off the area where the horse has urinated. Remove the wet patch with a muck fork.

    c. Spread dry material over the removed urine patch.

4) Top up the stall with fresh bedding as required.

5) The used muck and cardboard makes great compost and will break down rapidly.

Airlyte Information Sheet — Airlyte

Ammonia is released from the retained horse urine and without adequate ventilation these fumes can be a significant irritant to your horse’s respiratory system. As long as the floor of the stall is dry corrugated cardboard bedding will retain its springy feel with excellent cushioning and insulating properties.
