Having practiced veterinary medicine for 30 years and shown halter horses with my wife Priscilla, I have seen many different products come and go. The stall mats created and marketed by Groundmaster Products Inc. have been our greatest find and best buy to date. They are easy to custom fit and light enough for anyone to install. They are indestructible. The one-piece construction and “nail-down” installation prevents the mats from “curling” – they stay flat and in place. The savings on “fill dirt” and bedding alone have paid the cost. Medically, the mats provide a cushion for those “sore” horses and virtually eliminated ederma or “stocking-up”. Disinfecting stalls is a breeze. Our only regret is that we didn’t have them thirty years ago!

I have used Groundmaster in two different barns over the past 10 years. We have had no noticeable wear. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The ease of stall cleaning and the amount of time and bedding saved makes your product worth its price and then some. I found the most important thing when installing your product is to follow your directions closely and make sure your base is compacted and the right material used. I have not yet had any compactions in any area of my stalls that needed to be refilled as we heeded your directions. Thank you for offering a truly remarkable product to the horse industry.

We installed Groundmaster flooring in 7 stalls in our broodmares barn at the University of Florida’s House Research Center in 1992. See Animal Animal Science Research Report AL-1992-1. Since this time we have used these stalls almost continuously. The mares and their foals use the stalls from January through early summer and the yearlings that we are fitting for sale use the stalls for 60 to 90 days in the summer. All of the Groundmaster floors have handled this use and have maintained their integrity for this entire period.
