FAQ

What advantages are there with the OTTO StableMat?
  • Cold insulation: The OTTO StableMat offers the horse a pleasant surface that ensures good insulation against cold ground thanks to the integrated air chambers.
  • Protection of the musculoskeletal system: The OTTO StableMat cushions shocks while providing balanced impact resistance, so that the joints, ligaments and tendons of the horse have the best possible protection.
  • Saving on litter: When the horse accepts the OTTO StableMat itself as a comfortable place to sleep, then shavings are only necessary to absorb urine. A thick warm bed of shavings is unnecessary, thereby reducing the consumption of shavings significantly and simplifying disposal.
