Factors to Consider when Choosing the Right Stable Mat

Stable matting is one of the best ways to make a horse feel comfortable within their living environment.

Here are some of the characteristics that you should look out for when choosing the best stable mat to suit your requirements.

Physical Factors

  • Material

Stable mats are commonly manufactured from rubber due to its durability and affordability. Another material that is regularly used is EVA, which is lighter compared to rubber. Aside from rubber stable mats, Coruba also offers EVA stable mats.

  • Size

The size of a stable mat usually varies from 30 cm2 up to 4m2 (Source: FindMats.com). Clearly, bigger mats are heavier and harder to install. This is the reason we would probably recommend that you choose smaller mats. They are also more affordable.

  • Thickness

Stable mats are 1 to 2 cm thick. It is advisable to choose thicker mats because they last longer. Thick stable mats are more likely to stay in place once they have been installed.


  • Reversible

It is better to choose a reversible stable mat. Why…? You will be able to use the bottom side as well as the top.

  • Non-permeable

Unlike typical mats, non-permeable stable mats can resist foul odours that are inevitable within the stable environment.

  • Portable

The portability of a stable mat depends on its size and weight. A portable mat is easier to use.

  • Durable

A high quality mat will usually last for 5 to 10 years. Check out the reviews to get an idea of the functionality of the mat before you make your purchase.

  • Price and Quality

Consider not only the price but also the quality. Some stable mats are cheaper but they are often less durable. Choose a high quality mat that is offered at a reasonable price.
