I REALLY like that wood pellet bedding.
I put about four 40# bags into my mare's 12x12 stall, pick the poop and pee spots daily (she's in at night so I do it in the morning when I let her out), and add a new bag every week.
So far, using that method, I haven't had to strip the stall at all and it still smells fresh!
It soaks up water like crazy, doesn't smell if you get the pee spots out on a daily basis, and it's super easy to shake off poop piles = less waste of clean bedding.
Bottom line: it's my favorite. haha
