Quality at the heart of everything we do

The market for wood pellets as animal bedding has grown significantly in the last few years, due to pellets being more sustainable and hygienic than traditional forms of animal bedding.


Equestrians are always looking for the best quality products for their horses,
particularly where the horse’s wellbeing and comfort is concerned. Cost
effectiveness and time efficiency are also high priorities, so the team spotted
an opportunity and hence, EquiKing was born…


The first product to be brought to market in the UK is Bioforestal, a 100% natural wood pellet bedding that combines premium absorbency, quality and comfort. More recently we are now suppliers of premium white wood pellets for all those that like the look of a fluffy, white bed.

Why Choose EquiKing?

Our products are 100% natural and engineered with your horse’s health and wellbeing at heart
We are passionate about providing the best for you and your horse, using only the highest quality materials
We are experts in distribution, ensuring that your bedding is delivered direct to your stable door with no fuss
 Our friendly team is passionate about great service, supplying you all year round.

STEVE ARNOLD

CEO

Steve has been involved in publishing, operations and distribution for over 30 years. Originally Head of Operations at Thomson Directories, he cut his industry teeth in publishing, distributing 24 million directories door to door across the UK. This is where he met Nicki Kavanagh, with whom he is working on the EquiKing brand.

Steve has a passion for all things eco-forestry, so moving the business into pellets for eco-fuel and environmentally friendly horse bedding seemed obvious.

He and Nicki had a chance meeting about two years ago when he learned about her passion for equestrian and since then they have been formulating a plan for pellets! 

Steve lives in Hampshire with his family.

DAVID MEIKLE

Operations Director

David first met Steve at Thomson Directories. There for 18 years, he worked in Procurement and Operations alongside Steve. This is where David developed his skills in distribution. What David doesn’t know about the UK distribution network is not worth knowing, which is hugely valuable in delivering pellets to EquiKing customers, no matter how far flung! David lives in Cornwall, in the middle of nowhere as he describes it, with his partner and three Labradors.


Steve and David founded the UK branch of PelletKings together to bring you EquiKing.

We compared shavings with the pellets, to ascertain water absorbency of both bedding types.

Life made easier!

"I have been so impressed with EquiKing as a company so far, from their quick and efficient delivery to their friendly service. We share a passion for making sure my horses have the highest quality products. The pellets are quick to muck out and fill up the wheelbarrow and muckheap slower, making everyone's life easier!"
