It is with great delight that we announce Bliss Bedding as the Official Bedding Supplier once again for the British Showjumping National Championships & Stoneleigh Horse Show 2019. Based in nearby Derbyshire, Bliss Bedding is manufactured using premium quality, dust extracted rape straw from UK suppliers.
Mandy Deville from Bliss Bedding explains why: “Bliss Bedding Ltd are delighted to be renewing our sponsorship with the prestigious British Showjumping National Championships & Stoneleigh Horse Show this August. The Championships are a target for most British Showjumping members to aim for and there is always a lovely friendly atmosphere. After attending the event for many years as an exhibitor, we decided to sponsor the bedding for the duration of the show as we feel that it gives us chance to showcase our bedding with the end users themselves. Last year  was the first year we did and we are pleased to continue on into 2019.
“Our treatment of the bedding is also a great aid to the bio-security of yards which in this year of equine influenza is of particular importance and events that have large numbers of horses in and out benefit from this treatment. Any aid to reducing the risk of infection and diseases is helpful for horse welfare.
“The National Championships attracts a broad range of riders and we love the fact that people can see and work with our products. It helps us to demonstrate why we are the premier brand of rape straw manufacturers in the UK. We bring all three of our scents – Basic, Citronella and Eucalyptus – so that the riders can appreciate our full range. Our bales go further than most of the budget brands and the riders can see this in the amount they use for the show. At an average of 20kg a bale there is up to 25% more Bliss in a bag than some other brands, thus making it very cost effective.
“Our bales are treated with a bittering agent to deter bed eating and the bedding rots down quickly therefore making muck heaps more manageable. All of Bliss is manufactured, bagged and delivered by ourselves so that we can maintain and ensure our high standards of quality from start to finish. Our bags are also recyclable which ensures we are as environmentally friendly as possible. At Bliss, we supply nationwide with our own haulage and will be delivering bedding to the British Showjumping National Championships direct.
“We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible again this year at the show and we will be running competitions and special offers from our stand so please come over and say hello!”
Event Director, Emma Wardell, commented: “On behalf of Grandstand Media Ltd I am so pleased to be welcoming Bliss Bedding back to BSNC for a second year. They are a lovely team to work with and are so passionate about their product which provides a perfect bedding mix for the 120 horses being housed here on site throughout the week. The standard of competition here is high, therefore we need a bedding which can be relied upon to be suitable for a range of different horses after either a long journey to get here or a demanding day competing. We believe that Bliss Bedding does just that and are proud to be able to offer it to the competitors at the show.”
