The benefits of having and caring for a horse are many, and include things like improved mental and physical health, emotional support, fitness, and a creative way to enjoy the outdoors. It has been said that horses are loyal, intelligent, and have long-term memories.

For those who have or work with horses, the area in which the horses spend the majority of their time is of major importance. A horse requires a healthy environment with many specific needs being met for it to thrive. A horse stall is a common area to consider, with construction, maintenance, upkeep, bedding, stall mats, and stall wall mats being among the most important aspects to research.

Best Options for Stall Walls

Where a concrete floor is extremely durable, for example, it can also be very hard on the joints of the horse. If the horse tends to kick a lot, stall wall mats protect the surface of the wall and the horse’s knees, hips, and ankles. Think about how unforgiving a wall could be! Horse stall wall mats also provide insulation to the stall and can be easily cleaned - providing protection from bacteria that could potentially harm the horse. Stall wall mats provide so many pros to the horse’s space, and there are a number of options at Greatmats from which you may choose.

Regardless of the option you select, you can easily mount the stall wall mats on a board using a screw or other attachment and the surface.

Rubber Roll Wall Matting for Horses

Rolled Rubber Stall Wall Matting
Rubber rolls are an excellent option when considering stall wall mats. They are extremely easy to install, and they are very durable, while economical. If your stall is concrete, metal, or wood, this would enhance the safety of the surface, as well as the comfort.

It has a toughness that will take the use and abuse of an active or aggressive horse, and it will not buckle or fold under pressure. Rubber rolls are 4 feet wide and available in various lengths. This is a common choice for horse barns and horse trailers. Use screws with washers to install these rolls.

Horse Stall Wall Pads

Foam Wall Mats are often used in equine recovery stalls at equine hospitals and veterinary offices and sometimes at equestrian centers and horse stables. These wall pads are most commonly used at sports stadiums.

They can provide 2 to 3 inches of foam padding protected by durable vinyl. We recommend using wall pads made for outdoor use because they are more heavy-duty and can withstand being cleaned and sprayed with water better than indoor wall pads. This is important as wall pads for veterinary hospitals need to be cleaned often.
