Consistent Texture

Guardian manufacturing specifications provide a softened fiber that will be larger, more consistent and longer lasting than other brands. You can count on the same high quality pellet every time.

High Heat Treated to Remove Allergens

In the pelletizing stage, the wood is high heat treated removing tars, oils, hydrocarbons and other potential allergens.

The Power of the Pellet

The Guardian pellet is compressed under high pressure. This pellet will expand up to 5 times its size when exposed to moisture. Pound for pound, the Guardian Pine Pellet will be the most absorbent bedding you can find.

Highly Absorbent

The wet spot will actually clump for fast and easy removal. We recommend 4—5 inches of depth in the stall. This will provide the bedding needed to trap the urine quickly, avoid spreading of the wet spot, which will reduce ammonia levels and waste less bedding.

Reduce Consumption and Disposal

Guardian Pine Pellet bedding will greatly reduce your bedding consumption and disposal over traditional flake shavings and straw. Some farms have recorded 70% consumption and disposal reductions with our bedding. While the pellets may be slightly more expensive per bag, then traditional shavings (not in all areas), you should cut your consumption by 30—50%. If you do the math, ( or we’ll do it for you) we expect that you should save no less than 25% up to 50% on your bedding costs. If you pay to have your manure hauled away, or pay someone to spread it, you will save by reducing your disposal by 30, 40 up to 50% as well!

Save Time Cleaning Stalls

Guardian Horse Bedding Pine Pellet Shavings as well as Swift Pick Shavings will pick so fast and easy you will clean stalls in a fraction of the time.

More Room For Hay

The Guardian Pine Pellet is packaged in a 40 pound bag that will require about 1/3rd the space of a traditional flake shaving bale. Since you will use less too, your storage requirements will be reduced by 2/3 to 3/4. Additionally, our pallets are wrapped and capped for safe outside storage.

Complete instructions are on the bag.

Your horse will bed on the soft fiber that makes the pellet.  It is comfortable, shock absorbing, and aesthetically pleasing.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Printable Step-by-Step Instructions

(based on a 12' X 12' stall)

We recommend 5 - 6 bags of our premium pine pellet bedding to start a 12 x 12 stall. This will provide about 4 inches of bedding after the pellet softens completely. This depth will provide quick absorbency and trapping of the wet spot reducing ammonia levels and spreading of the wet spot in the stall. You will ultimately use less bedding if you start the stall with this amount of bedding and maintain the average of 4 inches of fiber.

Cleaning the Stall

  • Locate and remove the wet spot at each cleaning.
  • Sift any manure.
  • Rake bedding spreading any unused pellets over stall area.
  • Add fresh pellets to stall as needed to maintain 4-5 inches of softened fiber depth.

Proper use of our condensed wood pellet bedding will provide substantial reduction in disposal and labor time required to clean as well as storage space requirements.


Start with a clean cage

  • Remove old litter from the cage or habitat before bedding with Guardian pellets. ****
  • Place up to a 1 inch depth of pellets in your pets’ cage or litter box. For smaller pets– we recommend our pine cobble for “ease of navigation” ;rats, gerbils, hamsters, where the depth should be about knee high. As the compressed pine softens during use, the depth will increase so monitor as needed.
  • Remove solid waste at least once daily and dispose according to local regulations.
  • The natural caking of our super absorbent pine allows for easy removal of the wetspot. You can dispose of it in your garden or compost. Add more pellets as needed.
  • For cages and habitats, we recommend complete removal at least once per month or as needed to sanitize the surfaces.
****For cat litter boxes, do not replace your current litter in one cleaning. Add 1/2 cup of Guardian products to your current litter substrate at each cleaning until replaced. This will allow adequate time for your cat to adjust to the change. If they begin to do their business outside the box, add old material for a few days and mix Guardian products more slowly. While this may seem laborious at first, it will be worth the effort! The health of your pet is important to us and we know that a clean, natural and healthy environment is key to good health.
