Dog Agility Mats

 Dog agility is a relatively new sport with its first widely documented appearance occurring in 1978 at a dog show in the UK.  John Varley, a committee member, was given the task of entertaining the audience between obedience and conformation competitions in the main ring.  He created a sort of obstacle course based on some things he’d seen in the equestrian world as well as a few things he had seen dogs do at a fair. From there, the popularity of these obstacle courses grew and evolved into a full-fledged sport.  Today, dog agility is an international pastime with many different sanctioning organizations and competitions worldwide.

As any dog agility trainer will tell you, training canines in dog agility requires the right equipment.  At Greatmats, our foam dog agility mats are the best product available for you and your dogs.  They are made of a high-density EVA foam that is rugged and lightweight.  It provides a cushioned surface that is great for running and jumping on but is also dense enough to not be squishy or unstable.  These foam tiles are double sided and in-line reversible. They require no adhesive to install and the tight fitting, interlocking foam mats leave no tripping hazards.  Because they don’t require a glue-down installation, this foam flooring is portable so you can bring it anywhere you’d like.  Tiles are waterproof which is convenient when the weather turns bad. Each tile measures 40”x40” so they are large enough to piece your floor together quickly yet light enough to bring them with you when it’s time to relocate.
Greatmats Dog Agility Mats have a felt-top surface texture that provides excellent traction. The non-slip surface provides a safer surface for you and your animals and also an element of fatigue relief that is ergonomically better for joints and muscles than many harder surface types.  (Your knees will appreciate them as much as your dogs will.)  The tiles are lead and latex free.  Custom colors are available and these interlocking foam tiles typically ship from our warehouse in 1-3 days.
If this particular foam mat is not exactly what you need for your application, please consider one of our other foam mats. We offer a complete and comprehensive line of interlocking foam mats with some starting as low as 99 cents per square foot. Some of our foam mat products are available with free shipping.

Horse Stall Mats

Is it a daily challenge to keep your horses and stables clean?  It might be time to consider horse stall mats.  Mats are great for keeping stalls and flooring neat and clean, even when it’s raining and sloppy outside.  Unlike dirt and other natural bedding, mats can be quickly hosed off and will dry quickly.  Mats also prevent horses from digging up the dirt and making a mess while still providing a softer standing surface than concrete. 

Our mats for horses are the best mats available on the market today and we provide them at competitive prices.  American made, these tight fitting, interlocking rubber tiles, are precision cut with a water jet.  This ensures a perfect installation every time no matter how unorthodox your facility may be.  The interlocking edges keep your floor from sliding around and making an unsafe environment for your horses.  Also, unlike less expensive “floating” mats, the interlocking design keeps dirt from getting underneath the edges.  Once dirt gets under the edges of cheaper mats, the edges begin to curl up creating a tripping hazard and an ongoing cleaning project that most people would just as soon avoid.

Our horse stall mat kits are made of the best recycled rubber on the market and come with a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects.  They are designed to last for 20 years under normal equine use.  They are great for a number of applications including horse stalls, wash areas, aisleways, foaling stalls, semen collecting stalls, trailer floors, and grooming areas.  All horse mats come with a flat bottom and diamond-top surface that provides comfort and stability for you and your animals.  They are remarkably easy to install and require no adhesive.

Horse stall kits come in three different sizes: 10×10, 10×12, and 12×12.  Each mat is 4×6 and weighs 100 lbs.
