What is Horse Stall Mats:


Horse stall mats are made from recycled rubber and are the perfect choice for placing on the ground of your horse stall. The soft surface of the rubber mat, similar to a mattress, not only provides a comfortable standing and resting area for horses but also helps insulate against moisture and cold, effectively protecting the safety of the horses.

  • The soft surface of the rubber mats provides better protection for horses, allowing them to rest better.

  • Rubber mats effectively isolate cold and moisture, providing horses with a warm and dry environment.

  • The textured surface of the rubber mats acts as an anti-slip measure, preventing horses from slipping and getting injured.

  • Rubber mats also help with stall cleaning, providing a clean and hygienic environment for horses.

  • Durable and resilient rubber mats can reduce noise, providing horses with a quiet environment.

How To Install Rubber Mats For Horse Stalls:


  1. Clean the stable floor: Ensure it's a cement floor or a compacted hard surface. Clean any debris and make sure the surface is level.

  2. Measure dimensions: Use a tape measure to accurately measure the interior dimensions of the stall (edge to edge) and calculate the number of rubber mats needed. The standard size for rubber mats is 4'X6'.

  3. Plan the placement: Based on the stall dimensions, calculate the number of rubber mats needed and plan their placement.

  4. Lay down the mats: To prevent displacement, you can use rubber adhesive applied to the bottom of the mats before laying them down.

  5. Installation requirements: For straight-edged mats, ensure they are tightly placed edge to edge. If they have interlocking mechanisms, simply interlock them together.

  6. Cut the mats: After laying down complete mats, measure and cut any remaining spaces with a utility knife.

  7. Arrange the mats: After installation, use a rubber mallet to carefully check for any bulging, lifting edges, or areas not fully in contact with the ground, ensuring the mats are flat and smooth.
