Equine Rubber

The Astute Horseperson’s choice.

There are four great reasons to consider rubber for your stall floors

  1. Economical : minimal bedding and shavings needed.
  2. Less work: minimal time spent mucking out.
  3. Hygienic: no seepage leaks or smell, easy to mop down or hose out.
  4. Save on vet bills: gentle support to sensitive legs and feet.

There are four even better reasons to use The Horse Shed Shop’s Equine Rubber

  1. We have the most superior stall flooring available. Our matting will out perform and out last any product on the current market.
  2. Our prices are extremely competitive.
  3. We have the best warranty, up to 15 years against manufacturer defects.
  4. We are horse people and we use our products.

The Horse Shed Shop has searched the world for the most comprehensive range of equine rubber products. From stable flooring, float/trailer and truck flooring, tailgate ramp mats to walker matting, we have the best solution for your horses’ safety and comfort. In line with The Horse Shed Shop’s pledge not to compromise on quality, our purpose made matting is both durable and cost effective.

The Horse Shed Shop’s unique Jumbo Stall Mats are the Premium stall mat on the market, offering gentle shock absorption and insulation without being spongy or unstable underfoot. We believe that the purpose of stall matting should be to take the sting out of the stall floor while still providing a firm and secure footing for your horse. Matting should be firm enough to replicate horses’ natural outdoor environment. With the insulated properties of Jumbo Stall Mats, horses can lie directly on the flooring. No bedding is needed but we recommend about an inch of straw, sawdust or shavings to soak up urine and coat manure.

Jumbo Stall Mats offer all the advantages of multi-piece rubber stall flooring with the added benefit of being a one piece mat that prevents seepage through the joints. This makes stalls easier to clean and keep clean and greatly reduces residual odours.

We can supply custom-made, one piece stall mats up to 4.2m wide, making this product stand well above other similar products on the market. Standard sizes available are 3.6m x 3.6m, 4.0m x 4.0m, 4.2m x4.2m.

The Horse Shed Shop’s range of float and truck matting and tailgate mats increase safe, stress free travel so your horse reaches its destination in the best possible performance condition.

Customer comments on The Horse Shed Shop’s Jumbo Stall Mats:

Eliza Park (now Sun Stud): These mats were extensively tested and used at the former Eliza Park. Former Racing Manager, Sue Ellis said, “After constant, everyday use these mats show no sign of wear and tear. Horses happily lie on them and there are no skin rubs on hocks or fetlocks from getting up and down. We use only 75mm of bedding on them opposed to approximately 200mm needed on concrete floors. Boxes with Jumbo Stall Mats take about half the time to muck out and I have calculated that we have savings of $2.10 per day, per stable for bedding and are reducing labour costs, per stable, by $2.50 per day. Our stables are in full use all year and I have projected annual savings of $1600. The cost, as well as the safety and durability, make these mats an excellent alternative to any other stable flooring I have used.”

The Horse Shed Shop believes savings of this magnitude make this matting a sound and astute business investment. In most cases the Jumbo Stall Mats will pay for themselves in 6-9 months, representing a far quicker payback time than any other product of its type.

The Ballarat Veterinary Practice: “We installed rubber mats to all horse boxes for the increased comfort of horses during their stay at the clinic. Charles Stenberg from The Horse Shed Shop supplied and fitted the mats. The Practice had previously installed different types of rubber in 2 boxes for laminitic horses but the cost was prohibitive to do all boxes at the clinic. The rubber mats Charles sourced for us are the cost effective solution we have been looking for. The installation of rubber mats has reduced the bedding necessary to keep patients comfortable. In the mare-foal boxes the flooring helps keep foals comfortable when lying down, as well as providing a non-slip surface for foals when still unsteady on their legs. The mats come as a single sheet to fit the individual boxes and installation is generally easy, requiring no glue. Due to the design of our boxes, Charles also fitted strips of galvanised iron across the entrance to avoid horses tripping when going into the boxes, while under sedation. We are very happy with the finished product and would recommend The Horse Shed Shop rubber flooring for any type of horse stabling or walkways.” Dr Ian C Fulton BVSc, MS, MACVS (Equine Surgery): Ballarat Veterinary Practice, 1410 Sturt Street, Ballarat, VIC 3350

Here’s What a Couple of Our Customers Had To Say about The Horse Shed Shop’s Jumbo Stall Mats:

ELIZA PARK

These mats have been tested at Eliza Park, and this is what Sue Ellis their Racing Manager has said, “After constant, every day use these mats show no sign of wear or damage.

I have found;

  • The horses happily lie on them.
  • There are no skin rubs on hocks or fetlocks from getting up & down.
  • We use only 75mm of bedding (wood shavings) on them instead of approx 200mm used on the concrete floors.
  • These boxes require less than half the time to muck out than our other stalls

I have calculated the following savings;

  • Material savings, $2.10/day per stable.
  • Labour savings, $2.50/day per stable.

As our stables are in full use all year, I project an annual saving of $1600 per stable. This, as well as being safe & durable, makes these mats an excellent alternative to any other stable flooring I have used.”

Savings of this magnitude makes this matting a sound and astute business investment. In most cases our Jumbo Stall Mats will pay for themself in 6 – 9 months. This represents a far quicker payback time than any other product of its type.

THE BALLARAT VETERINARY PRACTICE

The Ballarat Veterinary Practice has recently installed rubber mats to all horse boxes for increased comfort of the horses during their stay in the clinic. Charles Stenberg from the “The Horse Shed Shop” supplied and fitted the rubber mats. The Practice had previously installed different types of rubber in 2 boxes for laminitic horses, but the cost was prohibitive to do all boxes in the clinic.

The rubber mats Charles has sourced for us are the cost effective solution we have been looking for. The installation of the rubber mats has reduced the bedding necessary to keep patients comfortable. In the mare-foal boxes the flooring also helps keep foals warm when lying down, as well as providing a non slip surface for foals trying to get up when still unsteady on their legs.

The mats come as a single sheet to fit the individual boxes, and installation is generally easy requiring no glue. Due to the design of our boxes, Charles has also fitted strips of galvanized iron across the entrance to avoid horses tripping when going into the boxes while under sedation. We are very happy with the finished product and would recommend the “The Horseshed Shop” rubber flooring for any type of horse stabling or horses walk ways.
