About Haygain

We are Haygain, developed by riders for riders.

Haygain is a science-driven company, with the horse's health as our primary focus.

We are committed to improving equine health through research and innovation in the respiratory and digestive health issues. Developed by riders, for riders, we understand the importance of clean forage in maintaining the overall well-being of the horse.

Our hay steamers are recommended by many of the world’s leading riders, trainers and equine vets.

Haygain products are built to last and therefore offer great value for money, delivering:


The Haygain system was developed and tested in cooperation with the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, England.

By injecting the steam via our patented manifold system into the hay, which is located in the hermetically sealed and insulated Haygain chest, we are able to generate ultra-high temperatures. As a result, our products are proven to eliminate fungal spores, yeast and fungi in hay and haylage and kill 99% of bacteria, the primary contaminants that cause the majority of respiratory ailments.


Haygain now holds several patents.

Our patented system not only helps to manage and prevent respiratory ailments such as COPD / ROA, it also hydrates the forage into a highly palatable feed that is easy to digest and is ideal for fussy eaters, colic-prone and post-operative horses.

Haygain’s steaming process breaks down the fibres in forage, making them easier to digest, while maintaining all the nutritional value and increasing moisture levels. The steamed hay or haylage is fragrant and appetising, thus reducing wastage.


Haygain’s mission is to inform and advise horse owners on the importance of clean forage, both for themselves and their horses.

The majority of horses that are stabled for part of the day suffer from respiratory illness, often without showing obvious or immediate symptoms.

With forage being a major component of a horse’s diet, Haygain is committed to providing the best quality, hygienic hay and haylage and thus help reduce dust and microbial contamination in the stable environment.

By optimising the quality of your horse’s forage, you help minimise the negative consequences of poor respiratory and digestive health.

Maintaining a low dust stable yard is also beneficial to the horse’s riders and grooms; Haygain’s easy to use steamers minimise respirable dust levels in the stables, thus alleviating human health problems such as asthma, “yard cough” and hay fever.
