When building a new stable or stalls for horses, what they will be standing on is a very important consideration.
Horses that are kept in have to stand still on whatever is on their stall floor for long periods of time, which can be hard on their legs. For this reason, from a leg health perspective, flooring needs to be chosen carefully.
Maintenance is another factor. The upkeep of some types of flooring is easier than others.
