Indoor wash stall

What is on the walls of your indoor wash stall?

Mine is wood walls that are covered in a plastic liner similar to a bathtub/shower surround and sealed with caulking at the floor where it meets the concrete.

I have boarded at many different barns with indoor wash racks. Most have a plastic sort of sheet (a little bit textured and colored white) that I am not sure what it is called. It is usually installed over wood.

Some have tin, IMHO exposed tin is a huge no-no for horses. All it takes is one swift kick and a hoof or leg gets caught.

While wood is not the easiest to clean it is commonly used.

Rubber mats are also sometimes used.

I think the most important things to look for are:
-easy to clean
-sealed (sometimes people pour a concrete curb around it)
-hoof proof

After that there are many different levels of cost and appearance. Soooo many options.

Ours is partially surrounded with wood but is very "air-y". One nice thing is it's portable.

Ok. We don't actually have a wash stall. We don't even have a barn. The wash "stall" is at the end of the garden hose. The wood is the trees. LOL

Many barns do have the plastic wall panels and concrete floors. One barn we were at did have wood walls.
