When stall mats slide and move around, it can present a number of problems. Not only does it cause the potential for an animal’s injury, but it can also create a messy opportunity for mold, mildew, muck, and waste to take over.

When a large animal such as a horse paces or paws, this can make the mats move around. Finding a way to keep stall mats in place is not as difficult as it may at first seem. It really is as simple as starting with a compacted, level subfloor, and eliminating any space between mats for shavings and waste to get in between and under the mats. Choosing mats that are heavy-duty and those with an interlocking, tight fit will help prevent stall mats from slipping and sliding.

Greatmats offers a huge selection of stall mats from which to choose - all of which would provide a safe and clean footing for your horse or other animals.
