Rubber horse stable matting not only saves on bedding costs; it is also proven to improve the health and comfort of your horse - it achieves this by providing an insulation and comfort layer on the concrete stable floor. This reliable rubber matting solution means you will only need approximately 20% of your normal bedding, so it will pay for itself in no time.
Stable matting is available in different design options:
With their textured, non-slip surface which increases grip levels even in wet conditions, they reduce slipping
The grooved/channeled underside helps dispel moisture and provides relief to horses’ joints and muscles
Durable and non-porous
Easy to clean, they do not smell when properly fitted
Fitting of Rubber Stable Matting
The general measurement of stable matting is 6ft x 4ft or 1.8m x 1.2m. Available in 17mm and 12mm thicknesses, 17mm thick mats weigh 45 kilograms and 12mm thick mats weigh 32 kilograms. The thicker and heavier the mat, the more it will tend to stay put even without adhesives or fasteners.
Stanley knife or jig saw
Piece of chalk
Clean and disinfect the stable and allow it to dry
Measure the surface that needs to be covered. Draw a guideline using chalk
Add about half a centimetre to your measurement; cut outside the chalk mark to achieve this. You can use a jig saw for quick and easy cutting or you can opt for a Stanley knife for a smaller quantity of mats
When laying the mat in place, the cut edges should just turn up at the wall. These can then be hammered down to tighten up the joins
After installation, vacuum the remaining mat debris
You may also consider using non-standard layouts, using several pieces of matting with different dimensions – please refer to the image above.
