horse matts are a great idea. attic is built like a flat, but it's not fv(k up enough and it's very hot in there at summer. i would rather train in the garage, but it's full of garbage cans and bicycles etc.

I've never seen a rubber horse. What sort of stall do they go in and why do they need a mat?

Carpet would give some protection, particularly if you were still careful not to drop weights. You could even lay down extra layers of old carpet or carpet padding if you want to be able to drop weights a little bit.

In the US you can buy rubber matting at farm supply stores, made for use on the floor of horse trailers or stalls. It's not cheap, but in a range that wouldn't be prohibitive for a small area.

Sheets of plywood as well. Stack up three sheets of plywood, maybe over a rubber mat. In the US the cheapest stuff is $10.00 or so per sheet.

Drop the weights, shatter the plywood, not the floor. Shock spreads out through the wood. If you drop it a lot, replace the top sheet once in awhile.

unfortunately equitation is very big in the region i live, so there are lots of shops where you can buy matts etc, but the price is a problem, i don't want to spend so much money on other things than training equipment. the only problem is deadlifting, the rest goes into the rack. plywood could help, gonna check this out.

It's that second language thing. "Equitation is the art or practice of horse riding or horsemanship." In Denmark, that may be a common term. I think "horse riding" would work better.


Here are some other flooring options besides horse stall mats. http://www.greatmats.com/

also a good source to get to know the different options for the floor. maybe there is a similar company in germany.

Spelled wrong. It's equestrian. Yes that is a good word but it typically only applied to fancy ass riding like steeplechase, dressage, horse jumping, etc. I'm sure the Texans in our group never use that word. Technically the term includes working with horses, horse racing, harness racing, rodeo, chuckwagon races or simply recreational horse riding, it's hardly ever used in that context, and those are the most common horse riding activities in North America.
