A leading horse breeder rebuilding four stables on a stud farm in rural northern Victoria wanted to modernised the stables using an innovative, functional solution that offered a professional finish. Each stable required a surface stabilisation solution that would provide adequate drainage and comfort for the animals while requiring minimal maintenance and offering a long life. Having seen GEOHEX™ on social media and being used in other applications, the horse breeder was keen to see the product in person and visited the GEOHEX™ stand at Equitana.
The four stables, which had previously featured simple dirt floors, required a solid base that offered permeability to ensure that urine and water could pass through and drain away from the horses’ living quarters. Concrete was not a viable option as the flooring needed to be easy on the horse’s feet and also comfortable enough for the animals to sit and sleep on.
