What Ingrid says about steaming hay with a Haygain Hay Steamer
“Not only I like Haygain very much, but especially the horses. They all love to eat the hay from the Haygain and I found out in Tryon last year at the World Championships that my favourite hero Bobby really likes it a lot.
So we decided we would take it at home and we take a Haygain to the shows, it’s dust free [...] and so it is very good for the breathing and especially they keep eating all the show long.”
