Working on a barn, FINALLY. Anyway, we already plan to redo the dirt to make sure water drainage isn't an issue, but aren't 100% sure what the actual stall flooring will be.
I like mats bc I do have one that will pace occasionally and dig holes, but I don't really want concrete flooring.

We were thinking a layer of small/crushed gravel, layer of sand, all packed. And then just putting mats on top.

I found these "Stall Savers" that are solid but allow the urine to pass through and down. They seem to be priced very reasonable, about $200 for a 12x12 stall, and are one solid piece.

I have experience with solid mats and mats with holes, and both have disadvantages obviously. The solid ones allow urine to just sit on top and get gross if life happens and you can't clean a stall daily. The ones with holes hold all the nasty gross poop and pee in the holes and are nearly impossible to clean.

These Stall Savers SEEM like the perfect balance, a smooth surface but still allows the wet to pass through and down.

Anybody use them?

I have not...I do know some folks who have had their local Polylast folks pour mats for them to use in stalls which drain and they seem to work well. I also know of folks who have horses who have pawed through polylast, so there’s that. I would guess that’s a risk with any pourous mat and a horse who paws in the same place.

We installed them about 2 years ago. Best thing we ever did! I have a horse that would tear up his rubber mats everyday. It was a guarantee that I would spend 30 minutes in his stall fixing his mats. We bought the Stall Savers and he has never torn up his stall again. They seem to be holding up really well. Every now and then I run across a snag in the fabric with my stall fork, its not a hole but where the fabric has gotten roughed up. I would recommend them. We pick our stalls 2 times a day so I don't know how they would work for someone that only cleaned stalls once or twice a week. Just a thought.

I had them back in 1999 when they first came out. Used them with the Ceda-Rest bedding and loved them. Stall stayed dry and clean. The cedar bedding cut down on flies.

This was my original post...we haven't ordered them yet, but will be. After doing a ton of research and reading reviews, it seems like the best choice.
Leveling the dirt, then adding packed gravel and sand.

Just wondering how your stud is doing since you brought him home?

That was my next question..what's everyone putting under them! I was also thinking dirt/compacted crushed rock.

And...I wonder if mice can chew through them?!
I'm in SW Florida, so we always have a few mice in our barn unfortunately.

We used compacted crushed limestone. Packs down hard and allows drainage. I would think that sand might not work because it would allow the mat to move when the sand gives.

They decided to hold onto him for another year or two :( so, it's ok... gives me more time to save up. There are some pictures of his 2017/2018 foals on his facebook page of Dash Of Pacific
