Healthy & Styrian  Alpenspan

Alpenspan is a product of Johann Pabst Holzindustrie. In Zeltweg, in the unspoilt uplands of Styria, amid rich and healthy spruce forests, the dust-freed shavings are produced in an industrial plant managed in accordance with the most modern environmental and economic principles. Alpenspan has become an indispensable litter for modern stables. Because nature and health are the mainstay of horses' well-being. Horse-lovers and breeders should always store Alpenspan so that it is clean and dry. The 20 kg balls are packed watertight, the sheeting is very tough.

Packaging guarantees clean & dry shavings

Precisely sealed sacks, delivered on well wrapped Euro-pallets that hardly take up any storage space. The dust-free spruce wood shavings, free from pesticides and chemical additives, are a pure natural product from Johann Pabst Holzindustrie. These soft shavings are excellently suited to use as bedding for the stables of your horses. Alpenspan is also suitable for creating an ideal hall floor. Healthy, long-lasting and economical. For the good of your fine four-legged friends!

Alpenspan and the Big Riding Tournaments

From Aachen To Zurich: A list of important riding and jumping tournaments, which could have been made much longer. At first it was the Festival of Horses in Vienna; now many renowned tournament organisers use Alpenspan as litter for the boxes and for setting up the floor in the riding arena.

Healthy litter for your horse

Alpenspan is above all an important health factor for horses. Alpenspan works like a sponge, absorbing the moisture of urine optimally and reducing the ammonia smell in the stalls substantially. The dangerous cycle of coliform bacteria is interrupted, because this litter, unlike straw, is not consumed by the horses. Alpenspan also has a thoroughly positive influence upon the temperature and air conditioning in the stalls.
