Many horses spend a good portion of their lives in or around stalls and stables. Whether you are building a barn or re-doing an existing barn, the foundation and base material for the stalls are extremely important. These areas also need to be safe, comfortable and functional. Stalls need to be kept level, to prevent back and leg problems, dry to prevent respiratory, foot and skin problems. Some have tried hard packed clay, wood, and even asphalt. The problem with these materials is that they don't hold up and they can retain moisture and mold. They are also difficult to manage and keep clean. Rubber stall mats are an excellent means for providing warmth and soothing relief from cold concrete or dirt floors. They reduce the stress on your horse's legs, back, and muscles while it is standing, while at the same time offering you a floor that is easily cleaned. In horse stalls, the uses of porous materials as sub-flooring help improve the drainage condition of the stable by eliminating the problem of water stagnation. Rubber is cozy, durable, and a cost effective method to floor the stalls. If pathways leading to stalls are a source of concern, Rubber-Cal offers rubber-flooring products that help alleviate aesthetic and anti-fatigue concerns.
