Simply sprinkle on stable floor
EquiFresh is a pure organic mineral which reduces damaging ammonia in the stable environment
Your stable can be a healthier and fresher place for both you and your horse if you use EquiFresh regularly.
EquiFresh is not a masking agent nor disinfectant. It comes as granules which are easy to sprinkle on soiled areas of the stable floor after mucking out and before putting down the clean bedding. EquiFresh works with any kind of bedding material and is excellent with rubber mats.
Once applied to the floor, EquiFresh will cut down the ammonia released from the horse’s urine which stays in the atmosphere, making it smelly for you and compromising your horse’s health. Ammonia has been proved to affect horses’ respiratory and immune systems and impair their performance.
Levels of ammonia are linked to protein in the diet so horses fed high protein diets produce more. Horses fed on haylage will excrete double the amount of ammonia than those fed on hay.
EquiFresh Natural is completely odourless but we use essential oils to scent our Citronella, Eucalyptus and Lavender products so you can choose the additional benefits of their fly repellent or relaxant properties – not to mention a pleasant smell!

How EquiFresh works
EquiFresh is a safe natural mineral which binds up ammonium ions in horses' urine and prevents them being released into the environment as ammonia.
Why is ammonia harmful?
As well as the unpleasant smell ammonia gives off in stables, even low levels can have
a detrimental effect on your horse despite regular cleaning.
Research both here and in America has proved that ammonia in horses’
environment can compromise their immune systems and damage their
Ammonia is a poisonous waste product of urine reacting with bacteria on floors
and is responsible for the strong smell present when horses have been standing in stables and horseboxes. Horses kept in confined spaces for long periods can be affected by the harmful effects of ammonia which inflames the upper respiratory tract and eye membranes and breaks down the hoof wall. Exposure to even low levels of ammonia can cause decreased immunity if it is longterm. As well as obvious health risks, a horse’s performance will suffer from impaired respiratory function and that can lead to days off work.
You may have already taken extensive steps towards making your horse’s environment dust and spore free by changing bedding, soaking hay, feeding haylage/garlic etc, but high levels of ammonia in the environment are just as detrimental to respiratory health. Ammonia quickly builds up in a confined space, even after cleaning. Levels of ammonia are linked to the amount of excess protein in the horse’s diet and those fed on haylage produce double the amount of ammonia than those fed on hay – and that’s without the contribution of any hard food you may be giving.
Research has proved that ammonia from urine can adversely affect a horse’s respiratory tract, immune system and hoof wall.
