Save Money on Horse Bedding With Stable Matting

Rubber matting has a lot of different uses. From around the home and the garage, to workplaces such as offices and industrial spaces, rubber matting is extremely versatile.

But have you ever thought about using it in a stable? Installing rubber matting in your stable can make it more comfortable for the horses and bring a lot of other benefits, too. Keep reading to find out more.

Better for their health

Stable floors must be durable, but they also play an important role in the overall health of your horses.

This is because horses that dig up their bedding or roll a lot can hurt themselves on the cold, concrete floor. Rubber matting for stables provides a layer of warmth and insulation as well as shock-absorbing properties to protect your horses when they move around.

Blood circulation, joint health, hoof health and fatigue are affected by the flooring material. You may find that other soft floorings build up dirt and sand which is difficult to clean. Rubber matting, on the other hand, is very easy to maintain and keep clean while providing the utmost comfort for your horses and bettering their overall health.

Money saving

Rubber matting can save you time and money.

Non-draining rubber mats need to be used in conjunction with some form of other bedding such as straw, shavings or wood pellets to absorb liquids such as urine from contaminating the ground.

Rubber matting that allows drainage can be used without any bedding and simply washed down each day. This is very economical and saves you money on horse bedding.

If you have a horse that stands in during the day, only adding bedding during the night and using draining rubber matting during the day can keep your horse clean and comfortable, as well as save you money. Plus, a healthier horse means fewer vet visits and lower healthcare costs too.

Warmer and quieter

Rubber matting has great insulating properties which makes the stable a much warmer and more comfortable place for your horse.

The thickness of the rubber mats will also absorb almost all sounds made by your horse’s feet moving on the ground, which in turn may also improve their behaviour by providing them with a quieter and more relaxing environment.

Easier clean-up

Mucking out a stable isn’t the most exciting job in the world, and most people would like to get it over and done with as quickly as possible. By installing rubber matting, there is less bedding to clean up and replace which makes the process much faster.

The rubber matting itself can also be lifted up, or removed, and given a wash with the hose which brings it back to new in no time.
