When searching for the best horse stall flooring options, horse caretakers and stable owners seek products that combine durability, safety, and comfort. Equustall® Horse Stall Flooring—a grid mat system—emerges as a superior choice. This flooring system is known for its resilience, ease of maintenance, and the comfort it offers to horses. Equustall Horse Stall Flooring is also a great option for other livestock and can support the weight of farm equipment and occasional vehicular traffic. Made from up to 100% recycled polyethylene, Equustall flooring not only provides a robust and reliable surface but also reflects a commitment to environmental stewardship.

Whether you’re renovating an existing stable or constructing a new one, understanding the benefits of high-quality horse stall mats can make a significant difference in your horses’ living environment.

Importance of Selecting the Right Stall Flooring:

Choosing the right equine flooring is crucial for the health and well-being of horses. A proper flooring solution can significantly reduce the risk of injuries, provide essential comfort, and contribute to a cleaner, more manageable stable. The Equustall grid flooring mats are particularly effective in these areas, offering a stable, permeable foundation that promotes cleanliness and drainage, thereby reducing mud buildup and enhancing overall stable hygiene.

  1. Durability: Equustall flooring is durable, weather resistant, and non-rotting. It is designed to withstand the demands of daily horse care, offering longevity and resistance to wear and tear.
  2. Comfort: Providing a supportive surface, this flooring helps protect horse joints and muscles, making it an ideal choice for equine comfort.
  3. Low Maintenance, Hygienic Environment: Easy to clean and maintain, Equustall flooring aids in maintaining a hygienic stall environment, essential for horse health. Additionally, because the Equustall flooring system is permeable, it allows water to pass through and helps reduce the buildup of mud over time.
  4. Cost-Efficient: Equustall flooring provides an economical solution by reducing long-term expenses. Its durable design minimizes the need for frequent replacements and decreases ongoing maintenance costs, making it a financially smart choice compared to other flooring systems.
  5. Simple Installation: The interlocking design of Equustall flooring allows for a straightforward setup, ensuring a secure and seamless flooring surface.

New Stall Setup in an Equestrian Riding Facility

Lucky Stables in Neenah, Wisconsin, selected Equustall Horse Stall Flooring for a new stall in their equestrian riding facility. They sought a rigid, long-term, and low-maintenance solution that would offer comfort and stability for their horses. The Equustall flooring system met these criteria perfectly, making it their choice for the updated horse stall.

Horse Stall Flooring Installation Process

At Lucky Stables, the installation of Equustall Horse Stall Flooring was planned for a stall measuring 9×18 feet, requiring a total of 162 square feet of coverage. This translated to the use of 9 boxes, or 54 Equustall units. Each unit is designed for ease of installation, with sections that can be field cut to fit any stall configuration, ensuring a custom fit for the specific dimensions of the stall.

Following base preparation, the units were placed to cover the stall area, then filled to stabilize the surface and enhance comfort. Typically, this filling might consist of sand or fine gravel to ensure that the mats remain even and stable underfoot. After infilling the units, this base was covered with hay to provide additional comfort for the horses and to introduce a more natural surface layer.

The whole installation process took less than three hours from start to finish. This quick turnaround time demonstrates the practicality and user-friendliness of Equustall Horse Stall Flooring, allowing stable operations to continue with minimal disruption.
