Robert Smith Endorses Arden’s Safemix Equestrian Bedding


One of Great Britain’s top international show jumpers is officially endorsing Safemix Equestrian; a high quality, yet affordable bedding product developed specifically for equestrian use by Arden.

Robert Smith has been extensively trialling and using Safemix Equestrian at his yards in the UK and Holland for the last 18 months.  He has been very impressed with the overall performance and consistent quality of the product, which is a blend of specially selected premium quality woodshavings and shredded soft woodfibre from untreated, sustainable wood residues.

Competing in some of the world’s most prestigious show jumping events, Robert Smith demands the highest standards for his horses, and creating a healthy stable environment is essential for top performance.

“We have been very pleased with Safemix Equestrian which really lives up to its name,” says Robert. “While offering all the obvious benefits in terms of comfort and hygiene, it is a practical product too which is essential for our busy grooms.  For us, we need reassurance that the quality is consistently high and Safemix never disappoints.  Having visited Arden’s manufacturing facility, and seen first-hand the meticulous production methods, you cannot fail to be impressed with their quality control and commitment to innovation.”

Chris Stanford, Managing Director of Arden Wood Shavings, a company he founded in 1980 and today a leading name in agricultural and equestrian bedding, says, “We are delighted with the feedback we have received from Robert Smith and his team, and are pleased to support him with Safemix Equestrian throughout 2011 and beyond.”
