By Cara Walters Created: August, 2017 - Modified: September, 2023

When deciding what type of flooring to use for horse stalls, it is important to consider 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 as well as extra money and time for you. Whether you are outfitting a home farm, a small business or a commercial operation, Greatmats has rubber and high-density foam horse stall mats that come straight-edge or interlocking to fit within any range of budget.


Adult horses can weigh anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 pounds, meaning horse stall mats should have a little give, while still delivering strength and stability, to provide comfort for their 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 on any sort of accumulated moisture or urine. 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.


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.
