What is your stall floored with?

It may be you need to dig down and put more gravel in the center deep down so it drains better if it is dirt.

And also you need to check to make sure you aren't getting water from somewhere else, and is adding to this.

Horses make me a better person.

Does the stall have an attached run or is it just a stall?
It it has an attached run, decrease the bedding to nothing more than a couple handfuls and add a yard of hogs fuel to the turnout.

Horses wait until they're in their stalls because the fluffy bedding absorbs the urine splash, that burns their legs.
By moving the splash absorbing material outside you horse will urinate there instead. Rubber mats are more than comfortable enough for horses to stand an rest on.

We add fluffy bedding because its what we as humans would want, but for horses it's excessive and unneeded. If you lay down in a pasture in the spring, it feels more like a rubber matter stall than our home mattresses.

If you don't have an attached run to your stall, your only other choice is construction to your stall as mentioned earlier, or acceptance and an investment in bedding.

Hope this helps!

I know this is a really old post but... If you haven't already, Have the Vet Check her over. Never a bad thing to have a vet come visit, even if they find nothing wrong with her, she's just a pee'er. At-least you'll know for sure. Purina Senior is a good quality feed. Purina is one of the best feeds on the market.
We have a couple horses in our barn that could fill a swimming pool,(Vet check up is normal) When it comes to my girls: Babe pees allot, Mea poos allot and Gypsy is normal.
For our stalls have a compacted gravel base still allows drainage with rubber mats on top. Each stall gets a mixture of Dejno's Brand of pine wood shavings and pellets. It helps control the amount the best so far with this combination. We clean the stalls everyday an most of the time it's not total clean outs, just gotta clean their messy spots. Then restock the bedding an put the pellets where their favorite pee spots are.
