Laura Collett, International Eventer says:

“With the horses travelling so frequently, biosecurity of their home environment is essential in order to prevent the spread of disease and ensure they are able to perform at their best. Whilst the horses are out on their holidays is the perfect time to wash, disinfect and paint the yard. I use the disinfectant and Antibacterial Stable Paint provided by Stable Shield.

I regularly use the disinfectant at home in the stables, wash bays and drains since it’s non corrosive, alcohol-free and kills 99.999% of bacteria. Disinfecting the lorry is now part of our post-competition routine, as an extra barrier of defence against common equine infections such as Ringworm, Strangles and EHV.”

Naomi Round, Eventer (@RacertoEventer), says:

“The paint has been amazing as we were able to start the new stable block off with it. Jerry has always suffered through the winter in the old block due to the mould. Since having our new stables painted with Stable Shield, there has been a remarkable difference in his breathing.

They are on a mix of wood pellets and chopped straw, so we take the wet out weekly. After which I use the disinfectant before putting fresh bedding down. It keeps the stables smelling fresh and I know that the horses are safe from any bacteria.”

Tom McEwen, International Eventer says:

“Painting a barn of 20 stables is no ‘quick’ task, however it is made a much easier when you know it is going to last. Stable Shield Anti-Bacterial paint is always our choice. It applies really well to all sorts of stone surfaces, dries quickly and leaves a lovely gloss finish. With so many horses that are normally travelling around the country and beyond on a weekly basis, an Anti-Bacterial paint is perfect for the environment in which they spend a lot of their downtime in. Water resistance means that it is easy to maintain a perfect finish on the yard, a simple wipe down of stable walls from time to time to get rid of any dirt and it looks freshly painted once again!”

Alan Creighton, Environmental Scientist at Equine Health Ireland, says:

“Stable hygiene is about being proactive rather than reactive. Barrier paints/coatings and disinfection are an essential part of the modern performance yard.”

Oliver Sherwood, Grand National winning trainer, says:

“We have used the paint and couldn’t be happier with it, other than doing its job of killing all the bugs it’s an incredibly hard wearing product that I predict will last for a long time.”

Champion Trainer, Nicky Henderson, says:

“Bio Security in the equine industry is becoming more and more important all the time due to milder weather conditions creating the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. As a yard competing at the highest level it is imperative that we take every precaution to ensure that our horses remain healthy and are therefore able to be trained to the best of their ability. Using Stable Shield antimicrobial paint assists us greatly in this process.”

Paul Croke, Head Stallion Man at the Irish National Stud, says:

“Biosecurity is of the upmost importance in our busy stud farm, Stable Shield was recommended to us by our biosecurity consultant.

Stable Shield Antibacterial Paint is a product which helps us to maintain a high standard of hygiene and presentation, while ensuring that our stock is in a clean and healthy environment. This paint is easy to apply and is very durable, standing up to power-washing without requiring frequent repainting”

Phillip Hobbs, National Hunt Trainer, says:

“We started using Yard and Stable Hygiene Services just over a year ago and have been very happy with the results. The paint has lasted well throughout the season and as a result we have had to do very little painting this year”

Tom George, National Hunt Trainer, says:

“We have been using Stable Shield Antibacterial Paint for the last two years, we are delighted with the finish and durability of the product”
