Stall Floor Footing

Moved to a new newly built barn and stall floors need some fixing up. Very uneven. Our old place had clay leveled/compacted under stall mats. I was thinking of using stone dust compacted. Any moisture that gets through mat joints will go through dust

Subbing, we were thinking of the same thing but wanted to hear others opinions as well.

After thinking about it while working going to go with stone dust. It holds up fine under patios I've put in and allows water to go through it. I'll save the clay for pond building

My barn has cement floors. I bought and put in 3/4 rubber mats. My shelter (adjacent to barn) has an uneven floor (at the moment), but only one horse uses it as a stall--it's 16' x 19'--and it's flat enough in the middle.
I say even out the floor. I'm also a gardener. Just takes some muscle and elbow grease. =D
