Choose of the bedding material is important especially in the Northern climate conditions, because
the horses are kept most part of the day and year indoors during their life. Especially, the effect of
the bedding material on the quality of the stable air is of great importance. Based on their
properties, it seems that peat and straw pellets are the most suitable beddings for horse stables. Also
pelleted newspaper seems to have a good potential as a bedding material.
