Grabbit, Drag it, Wash it
Rubber matting is a convenient and comfortable bedding option for equines but, while horse owners may muck out regularly, the mats are often left in situ leaving an undesirable cocktail of bacteria and ammonia to fester underneath. Such lapses in management are usually down to the cumbersome nature of rubber matting, which is why the award winning Grabbit Mat Mover is proving so popular.
Ammonia is known to be damaging to the respiratory system as well as irritating the sensitive tissue around the eyes and in the nasal passages but good hygiene is also important for biosecurity and avoiding the spread of sickness and disease. The sturdy Grabbit clamps onto rubber matting to provide a handle that enables horse owners and stable staff to move bulky rubber mats quickly and easily with reduced effort and back strain. Once outside, the mats and stable floor can be hosed down or disinfected as required to help create a healthy and pleasant environment for horses and their owners and grooms.

What Pegasus thinks:
The hard task of moving those heavy, dirty mats around was made so much easier by this lightweight gadget. I really liked Grabbit and found it very useful and easy to use. It is small enough to neatly store away and as it is plastic it can be easily washed off. I found it really saved my back from dragging the mats in an awkward position and being covered in the muck from underneath! You can just ‘Grabbit’ and go. Being a freelance riding instructor I would recommend Grabbit to my clients!
