Horse Rubber Matting

Horses thrive
on Numat.

Numat’s range of equestrian matting is specifically designed to provide safer flooring surfaces for horses. The benefits are well proven in New Zealand equestrian circles.

Horses were never designed to walk and lie on concrete. It’s abrasive, slippery, freezing cold in winter and ‘hard as the hammers’. Concrete flooring and walkways are a leading cause of slippage and hoof wear. The costs are significant yet avoidable.

Likewise, most horse truck and float floors are not designed with horses in mind. Hardwood flooring can become very slippery, stressing the animals or worse, contributing to falls.

On Numat rubber matting the hoof naturally sinks into the surface shaping to the animal’s contours and giving it grip and confidence. It’s non-abrasive, reducing wear and tear on horses’ hooves. And Numat will provide a warmer, quieter and more comfortable environment for animals and handlers.

Numat rubber matting is more hygienic. Research results prove that a non-porous, vulcanised-sealed rubber surface has a lower microbial count than concrete and wood. Numat is simple to wash down with a hose and broom, using considerably less water that with concrete – up to 50% less.

Featured case study

The Wilson Sisters Reduce Slips In Their Stable [Video]

When the Wilson Sisters noticed their horses slipping on the concrete floors in their Northland stables they went looking for a solution. They found it in the form of Numat’s Unimat stable matting.

Sisters, Vicki, Kelly and Amanda, had all witnessed horses slipping and falling on the concrete and knew they needed a high-grip solution to the problem.
