"We believe it is important to protect our valuable horses from the hard floor. Our stallion Graf Granno stands on Kraiburg mats, and they are the best that we have tried. They offer a comfortable supportive surface and reduces the time it takes to muck out. We have also put them in our grooming bay and the slip resistance is very good."

"We here at the centre have found the both safety and value for money are important to us. We would not have had any other products here but the best. Fit the best - fit Kraiburg."

"The horsewalker plays a vital role in our training operation and it creates major problems if is is out of action. Therefore it was crucial that we found a flooring system that really worked. I'm delighted to say that we have found such a product in Kraiburg rubber briquettes.Keeping horses injury free is paramount to a racing yard. The rubber briquettes provide a superior anti-slip surface for the horses to walk on and aid in preventing any further stress to the leg joints.Maintenance of the bricks is kept low by adding a small sprinkling of silica sand over the top allowing for the briquettes to be easily swept clean after use."

"We were looking for rubber matting specifically that would provide slip resistance for wet areas. We had designed an Equine Therapy Centre to accommodate an Aqua Treadmill, Hydrotherapy Spa,Solarium, with an integrated wash box area and treatment boxes - we needed to feel confident that the floor covering would give a safe handling area for both horses and handlers.Kraiburg were the only company that gave us the confidence that their product would achieve this. Personally I have used their stable mats for the last ten years for my own competition horses at home and I had been extremely satisfied with their fit, use and longevity."

"Many thanks for your prompt response, believe me there are a lot of matting suppliers out there (as you probably already know) but their service leaves a lot to be desired. It's nice to finally deal with a company on the ball."

"We believe that rubber matting is an essential part of low-dust management for stabled horses and leads to improved respiratory health... but what we have to come to learn is not all rubber matting systems are equal. In fact, poorly manufacturered and installed rubber matting can cause problems in itself. This is the reason that the Animal Health Trust has chosen to work with Kraiburg to evaluate the true benefits of a properly designed rubber matting system for horses."

"In 2001 we installed Kraiburg rubber mats in 38 of our stables and we are delighted with the result. Running a busy equestrian centre is very rewarding but can be a costly business. So with that in mind we looked to rubber matting as an investment for the future for our horses and us. Our main aims were to help reduce mucking out time, improve hygiene and save on spiralling bedding costs.The Kraiburg mats have proved to be very cost effective. We have greatly reduced mucking out time, muck storage and disposal costs. For a busy competition centre it is crucial that our boxes can be cleaned out and disinfected adequately between horses. Kraiburg mats are perfect for the job and the horses are seeing the benefits also. The rubber mat combined with a small amount of bedding really is a safer, softer and warmer environment. I believe College EC has made a very sound investment."

The walkway mat is excellent for our needs, it is a smart surface, very tough and hard wearing, and is nice and quiet when the yard is busy and the horses are walking endlessly.
