Portable Horse Trailler and Lightweight Stall Mats
Portable horse mats typically are made from rubber, making them very sturdy to handle the weight of the horse. However, if you ever want to transport your horse and take portable horse stall mats with you to the temporary location, rubber mats are heavy and difficult to carry. That's where our Portable Horse Stall Mats enter the picture.
These foam mats are 3/4 inch in thickness, so they provide the toughness and support you expect in a portable horse stall mats, yet they don't have the weight of rubber, making them easier to transport. These horse floor mats offer 4 square feet of coverage and only weigh 2.2 pounds each.
With horses, you can use these lightweight portable stall mats when traveling to events for temporary installations and portable stalls. Our super high density EVA foam mat is great for a large number of uses.
Use these portable stall mats in areas where your horses occasionally will be exposed to water or where you need to be able to keep the area free from debris. These portable mats are made of a waterproof foam material that's easy to clean.
This durable foam floor tile is made of very high density material and will withstand the weight of a horse. However, these foam mats are designed to be used in temporary and low traffic installations areas. We do not recommend this product for extended permanent use in a horse stall, where rubber mats are a much better option. If these foam tiles are used in horse stalls on a permanent basis, they will last a few years in most installations.
Some of our customers have made use of the portable stall mats for animals other than horses, such as in a dog run. Or if you have puppies, you could place these mats inside the puppy area in a garage or basement, making it easy to clean up any accidents.
Benefits of Temporary Horse Stall Mats
When moving a horse to a new area, you might be tempted to just allow the horse to stand on the bare ground in the area, rather than transporting horse stall mats with you. Although this will work for short periods of time, the EVA foam materials we offer in our mats will yield a steadier material for the horse to stand on for a longer period of time.
These mats will be gentler on the horse's feet and legs than bare ground, providing a little bit of cushioning. Additionally, our mats will create a flat, sturdy area for the horse and for the humans working with the horse, greatly reducing the possibility of tripping or stepping in a low spot. The flat surface created with the portable horse stall mats will be safer for everyone involved.
Finally, the mats are waterproof, meaning they will allow water to run off of them and away from the area where the horse will be standing. If you are just using a dirt floor in your portable stall area, the area could become muddy with water or liquid waste, leading to an unstable area in the stall. By laying down our mats, the horse will have a dry area in which to stand, all while keeping its hooves cleaner.
Thickness of Portable Stall Mats
Mats in horse stall areas typically measure between 1/2 and 3/4 inches in thickness. For a more permanent type of mat, you'll probably want the thicker style of mat, because it will stand up better to constant use. 3/4 Inch thick rubber mats weigh quite a bit more than 3/4 inch super high density foam mats. This means the 3/4 inch lightweight stall mats are a great option for portability.
One of the key things to remember with portable stall mats is that a mat of a good construction quality will have a uniform thickness that conforms to industry tolerances. Cheaper, lower quality mats will have thin areas, which could end up buckling or tearing under the weight of the horse. You can count on us to offer only the highest quality of mats with uniform thicknesses.
Temporary Stall Mat Installation Options
Our Portable Horse Stall Mats are easy to carry, to install, and to transport. And when you're ready to move the tiles back to the original location, the tiles are easy to disassemble and take up.
Because each mat only measures 2 by 2 feet, the mats are not awkward to carry for one person. And because the portable horse stall mats only weigh 2.2 pounds apiece, one person can do this installation successfully.
The mats have a small amount of give to them, so the area where they will be installed doesn't have to be perfectly level. However, the lightweight stall mats will work better and last longer if the area where you'll install them is level and firm and free of sharp objects.
You'll have the option of a wall-to-wall or an island installation with our portable horse stall mats. An island installation is easy because you don't need to cut any of the individual mats to ensure they'll fit tightly against a wall. The island installation will float in the middle of a stall or an open area, rather than being tight against a wall. However, the disadvantage of an island layout is that the horse or the human handler could trip while stepping over the exposed edge of the 3/4 inch edge of the tiles.
With a wall-to-wall installation of the lightweight stall mats, you almost certainly will have to cut the mats when you encounter a wall. You can cut the mats safely and easily using a utility knife and a straight edge. Just make sure you have a sharp blade on the knife at all times. If the EVA foam material in the stall mats is beginning to fray as you make your cuts, you need to swap out the old blade for a new one.
For a finished edge on the lightweight stall mats in either a wall-to-wall or island installation, we include edge strips that will fit perfectly onto the puzzle edges on the mats. You can choose to install edge strips on one, two, three, or all four sides of the mats.
Should you ever see some damage on one of the individual portable stall mats, these all-black tiles are reversible. This means you can just flip the mat over and use the other side to maintain a uniform look for your tiles.
Safe Horse Mat Materials
With a 3/4 inch thickness measurement, the interlocking EVA foam will stand up to the weight of people and horses without buckling. Additionally, each mat has a puzzle edge on it, meaning the mats fit together tightly. You won't have to worry about seams popping loose, causing a tripping hazard, with the tight interlocking edges on the mats. No adhesive is required.
The portable horse stall mats have a pebble surface, which provides just a little bit of surface texture. This ensures that the horse and the human handlers can walk on the tiles with a far smaller chance of slipping, even when the tiles are wet.
Foam Stall Mat Maintenance Tips
There are a few things to keep in mind when making use of these lightweight stall mats to ensure they will last as long as possible.
Vacuuming: Use a vacuum or broom on these mats on a regular basis to remove debris. Because some powerful vacuums could damage the surface of the mats, we recommend that you test the vacuum in an inconspicuous area of the installation to check for possible damage before using it on the full set of mats.
Sunlight: We do not recommend exposing our portable stall mats to direct sunlight for extended periods. These mats will expand and possibly deform if exposed to direct sunlight over time. They are not UV treated.
Temperature Extremes: EVA foam tiles are subject to expansion with dramatic changes in heat and cold, with exposure to direct sunlight, or with significant increases in humidity. Our lightweight stall mats will expand and contract when exposed to an annual freeze/thaw cycle in outdoor environments too.
Excessive Water: These portable stall mats are also not designed for use in wash bay areas. Although they are waterproof, too much moisture will affect these mats adversely.
Cleaning with Water: You can damp mop this product with common household floor cleaners, as long as you avoid bleach, but you don't want to expose the mats to excessive water for long periods of time. If you have a small area that needs a spot cleaning, you can use a scrub brush with soap and water on the spot without worrying about discoloration.
Our Portable Horse Stall Mats are offered with a one-year manufacturer's warranty.
When you're ready to order our lightweight stall mats, you just need to calculate the square footage of coverage area you need. Then use that number to determine how many mats you should order. Understand that because of the way the interlocking edges on all four sides of our portable horse stall mats fit together, you will lose 0.03 feet of coverage area to interlock loss.
