Over the past year, Aubiose sales have been through the roof as more people are experiencing the benefits and spreading the word. Creating partnerships and supporting our ambassadors is a great way of giving them a leg up in achieving their equestrian goals, as well as helping to raise even more awareness of our fantastic product.
Our bedding is used and loved by both professionals and amateurs alike, so it is really important to us that our ambassadors represent both sectors.
And it’s not just riders – whole yards have switched to Aubiose once they see the benefits for themselves!
We love Aubiose here at KW Equestrian and highly recommend it. We’ve had our whole yard on Aubiose for nearly a year now, and wouldn’t change it for the world.
We take half as much out as we used to which saves so much time and unnecessary waste. The cost saving with the price of shavings going up is really noticeable as well. We put in half as much as we would on shavings. Don’t be put off by the higher bale price as in the long run it will be sure to save you a lot of money. Our farrier also constantly praises how dry and healthy the horses' hooves are.
I have competed for Team GB in Nations Cups in Young Riders. I have successfully jumped up to 1m 55 nationally and internationally. I’ve produced horses from unbroken all the way to Grand Prix. I have sold horses that I’ve produced to the USA and many top riders. I have qualified multiple horses for HOYS and Olympia. I have jumped Puissances and cleared 2m 10 to finish 2nd at HOYS. I am also a qualified UKCC coach that runs a private showjumping competition yard in Hampshire.
Natalie qualified as a Vet from the University of Cambridge in 2008, and in 2011 went on to set up her own practice, South Coast Equine Vets, based in Hampshire. Since then, she has combined single handedly running her own practice, with competing her own string of horses.
Natalie has successfully evented Internationally, producing several horses to 3\ level, and her current top horse, Tricky Johnie, to 4*. She was previously a member of the gold medal winning GB team at the 3 Europeans with Promise Me, with whom she also qualified for the National Dressage Championships at Advanced Medium level. She also show jumps up to 1.25/1.30m. Over the past year, Natalie has been busy backing and producing her two homebreds, and is looking forward to getting them both out competing.
“When choosing a bedding to use for my new barn and vet practice, I wanted a product as dust free as possible, for obvious reasons, but also one that was extremely absorbent, as it’s so important to reduce ammonia exposure to both horses and humans. Aubiose ticks both of these boxes, as well as being a very supportive bedding, so for me, it was the only choice”
“After having used several types of litter, we finally found what we were looking for. Aubiose is very absorbent and works very well with dirty horses in the stalls. They tend to lie down very often which is a sign of well-being.”
“My name is Gracie Lovett Brunt, and I am a 17 year old event rider from Lincolnshire. I currently compete my two mares Jamakin Faer Trial (Arty) and Weston One Vision (Bonnie) at Novice and 2* with aims of Intermediate in the coming 2020 season. My long term ambition is to ride round the huge Burghley and Badminton courses and maybe one day compete for my country. I am lucky enough to ride Bonnie for the most supportive owner, Paul Graham. She is the most incredible mare, winning at Rockingham Castle Nu18 earlier in the 2019 season. Arty is a young horse with a bright future ahead of her, taking me round both Frickley 2* for the u18 national championship and Osberton 2* Long. She is very special to me and I can’t wait to step her up to Intermediate and 3* this season as she made everything feel so easy at Novice and 2*. I feel extremely lucky to have my two horses and am very grateful for the huge amount of support my parents give me. Aubiose have committed to supporting me and I feel very lucky to have their guidance. It’s lovely to have such friendly supporters who I feel like I can talk to and help promote the business. Their bedding is second to none and I wouldn’t have my horses on anything else, it is quick and easy to use, doesn’t smell and holds the urine well without any leaking. Thank you so much Aubiose for all your support, I hope I can make you proud and keep helping your company throughout 2020!”
Aubiose isn’t just perfect for use in your horse’s stable. It also lends itself brilliantly to use for barned horses or field shelters and will save both money and time. Gasworth Track Livery, meandering through beautiful Cheshire countryside, is one of our sponsored yards and is a totally grass free way of keeping horses that promotes movement across a variety of surfaces. The horses at Gawsworth are a mix of rehabilitation metabolic and laminitic cases who need to have a carefully managed diet, increased movement and appropriate surfaces. Aubiose helps keep the equine residents feet nice and dry, is supportive to healing hooves and can cope with the high volume of traffic that the communal barn area sees. You can follow their brilliant Facebook page here for day to day updates of track life, as well as seeing Aubiose in action.
“Aubiose has worked out so brilliantly for us here at GTL. It saves us huge amounts of time and labour as it’s so easy and quick to poo pick. We save hundreds of pounds each month as we only need to top up with fresh Aubiose once every 14 days, instead of daily when we were using straw. The horses love it and even our most sore and laminitic rehab horses will happily move about on our deep Aubiose beds in the barn.”
“The team spend large proportion of the day mucking out and tending to the stables, so to find a bedding brand that has so many positives for the horses and that also reduces the time taken to muck out is a huge benefit to us. It has proved very economical and the reduce wastage also means a smaller muck heap. The horses all see very happy with the change as well. It is nice to know we are using something that is a by-product and is 100% organic.”
Dressage riders Jezz Palmer & Lucy Pye run JLP Dressage from their yard in Hampshire. Follow them here as they train and compete a variety of horses up to Grand Prix both in the UK and Internationally.
“We run a dressage training and competition yard based in Hampshire. We pride ourselves on the level of care we offer all horses, that’s why we use Aubiose horse bedding. Aubiose is ultra-absorbent, comfortable for the horses and makes mucking out much more efficient, which when running a busy yard makes a huge difference. Having indoor barn stables can often lead to dust causing issues but with Aubiose that’s no longer a concern and it smells lovely and fresh as well.”

“All of our horses enjoy the comfort of Aubiose and have done for 5 years now. We have tried just about all the bedding types out there but nothing compares. It is cost effective and time efficient. Everyone is a winner!”
“Juliette introduced us to Aubiose 18 months ago as the staff were tearing their hair out over some very mucky horses and everything we tried just wasn’t absorbent enough and we were getting through a lot of bedding! Quite simply we haven’t looked back since at Froxfield stud. Aubiose is so much more economical and suits the dirty horses as well as the clean ones. The service we have received from Juliette has been exceptional – thank you Aubiose horse bedding”

“We’ve been using Aubiose at Webbs Green Stables for 4 years now, and have never looked back! Its super easy and quick to muck out, even with the messy ones I’m amazed at how much bedding we save! I love how it’s dust free too, which is the initial reason I started using it for my retired pony who has dust allergies.
Because you end up taking so little out, the muck heap is half the size. We use all our muck back on our fields, which means we don’t have to buy expensive fertilisers or pay for someone to take the muck heap away!”
