Pine River Bedding is one of the best options for your horse breed, regardless of any specific skin issues that that breed may have. Check out the link and article below.
"Pine is the most desirable type of wood shaving since most horses don't react to this wood source. However, if the pine is too green, some sap may remain which irritates the horse's skin."

Pine River bedding never uses green pine, and all sawdust or pellets are dried, aspirated (removes airborne dust), and ready to use when you purchase the bale. We disclose everything about our process, even going so far as to disclose the production specs on each product right on the product page. Our PRB Gold Stallion and PRB Double Quick Pick are extremely popular for this reason.
Additionally, we don't add anything to our pine, and all shavings, sawdust, and pellets are made from untreated lumber as well. We just wouldn't risk having that kind of concern when selling our product to a horse owner.
Are there other cheaper options for horse bedding? Sure. We have the link to an article that discusses the pros and cons of all of them. But if you desire only the best option for your horses, then it has to be pine. And why not try Pine River Bedding?
Great pure virgin wood shavings, pellets, and sawdust. Pine River Bedding.
