When choosing the best type of flooring for horse stalls, it’s important to consider your horses’ comfort, safety, and health. Investing in quality flooring can pay dividends when you consider the money saved on replacing bedding and the time saved on mucking dirt stalls. Poor flooring can result in a low quality of life for your horses and can potentially even lead to injuries. Whether you are outfitting a home farm, a small business, or a commercial operation, Greatmats has an excellent selection of stall mats, including inexpensive and economical options, to fit within multiple budgets.

Choosing the Best Horse Stall Mats

When choosing the best horse stall mats for your barn, consider the following features.


Stall mats play an important role in maximizing your horse’s comfort, especially when you’re dealing with a concrete subfloor. Mats should have a little give, while still delivering strength and stability, to provide comfort for your horse’s legs, joints, and tendons. Reduce hock sores and other arthritic issues with a durable, yet comfortable horse stall mat.


The slip-resistant surface of rubber stall mats can help prevent injuries from slipping and falling. Slip resistance is particularly important when moisture or urine is present. Waterproof rubber horse stall mats with proper bedding are great for keeping the surface area of the mats clean and free of moisture in many forms.

Ease of Cleaning

Unless diligently cleaned, barns without horse stall mats could cause debilitating health issues from frequent dust and unsanitary conditions. Rubber horse stall mats are the most effective way to prevent dust build-up in the air and clean ammonia-rich urine residue, which could lead to respiratory issues such as pneumonia and heaves. Look for a mat with a surface that’s waterproof and easy to clean, helping you to create a healthier barn environment.
