How to reduce ammonia in the stable

If you’re experiencing eye watering ammonia in your horse’s stable, it’s time to act to reduce the issue. Ammonia might be unpleasant for you, but for your horse, who spends more time in his stable than you do, it can actually irritate his mucous membranes and contribute towards respiratory issues. Here are our top tips on how to reduce ammonia in the stable environment…

  1. Ammonia comes from urea in the horse’s urine and droppings, so keep the horse’s stable as clean as you can – muck out daily and skip out where possible in between these times.Stable Fresh
  2. Check your drainage – if the drainage in your horse’s stable isn’t adequate, you could find that the urine is staying in the stable longer than it should.
  3. Lift your mats – if you use rubber matting, it’s essential that these fit correctly and that urine can’t seep between the mats and sit underneath them.
  4. Use Stable Fresh Dry Disinfectant Powder – our dry disinfectant floor freshener is anti viral, anti fungal, anti bacterial, eats odours and removes ammonia. It’s non harmful, long lasting and easy to use. It can also be used in kennels and horse boxes. As it’s a dry powder, there’s no need for drying time.
  5. Think about your bedding – some beddings and management systems can significantly reduce ammonia in the stable. If it’s a big issue for you, it’s something to look at.
  6. Ventilation – make sure your stables have adequate ventilation to allow air to flow through.
