Have to agree with you, the mats are the best solution!Have to agree with Maryann at MiniV, the Rubber mats with a layer of gravel and sand underneath, might actually be the best and the most simple solution for this kind of situations. Besides that, it is also really cheap to make such a floor for a stall. I mean, you do not need any kind of extra comfort and luxury in there, don't you? I actually have a friend that installed a parquet floor in his stall. Man, that is such a stupid idea. He even called for the guys from the best floor restoration agency online to help him install it.
