Why have stable mats?
Stable mats have several benefits for you and your horse and here are just a few.
They save on bedding cost as most people with horse mats only bed the rear of the stable. They are insulating and supportive to your horse so stop damp rising from the concrete floor and more comfortable for your horse to stand on. They provide better grip so help avoid a horse getting cast within the stable.
Our stable mats are made from high-quality rubber which does not harbour bacteria. The tops are finished with either a ‘bobble top’ type design or an Amoebic (easy sweep) design both are ribbed underneath and are usually between 16-18mm thick.
We can also source thinner or different mats for walls, horse walkers etc and can supply and fit to some local areas. If you are having Chapelstone stables we can deliver and install mats as part of the job please ask your Chapelstone representative for details.
Good to Know!
Many mats advertised as rubber mats are made from granular, recycled or filled rubber, each of which has their own inherent problems, they tend to be cheaper due to their quality and tear easily.
Important! Stable Mats are NOT available to order online due to their size and weight carriage has to be priced for each order. Collection can be arranged by appointment only as we do not have a shop and are not open to the public.
