I have such a messy horse, do you have any tips on keeping the bed as clean a possible, what do you use and how to keep him from turning it into a mess?

Try putting some hanging treats, a salt lick, a jolly ball, or any toy really in his/her stall to keep him/her distracted from making a mess
I would suggest putting more shavings down, I find they don’t spread them around as much then and therefore you’re not having to fullyclean out your stable every day and not wasting shavings. Maybe also see if he’s getting stressed in the stable and if so how can you solve that, maybe stabling him with a buddy next door or with some toys
Thank you girls I will give those a try x
Having rubber mats down and wood chip instead of shavings is great!
There isn't really anything you can do. I suggest you put a minimal amount of shavings in the stall and just strip it every day
