Stall flooring might not be something we spend much of our horsey time pondering, but it’s crucial to our horses’ health. Like humans, the surface a horse spends hours standing on can affect his comfort, soundness, and quality of movement. Stall flooring also affects how efficiently and thoroughly you can clean the stall—which, in turn, can affect horse health if ammonia accumulates in the airspace or dirt collects on surfaces on which they eat.
