I buy some sweet PDZ and covered the stall and put a thick layer of shavings on top of that. Mats are not a option right now because we can't afored them.
Is there any thing else I can do? I can't leave her out side because she burns. I'm open to any thing other than that. I can't leave her out side because she burns. I know if can not be healthy for her to be standing in pee all day.

Mats will not drain any better than the clay floor will so I am missing why you think they will fix the problem.

My wet horse is bedded in sawdust/shavings with straw on top. You need a thick layer of sawdust.

The straw on top keeps him out of the puddle while it soaks down and is absorbed in.

I still think laying down sand will help.

Sand is cheaper than mats anyday! Mats will just float around in the muck. Sand will allow drainage.

Can you put a summer sheet on her while she is outside?

I'm at a bording stable there is not much I can do. I can't just bring a load of sand in. Its her face that burns and the bo is freek when it comes to safty. I can't leave any thing on her or she will take it off.

My qh pees all over the place too... A lot! :( But I just use lots of shavings. Not the standard ones, but we have something in middle between the shavings and sawdust: not as dusty as sawdust, but soaks much better then pure shavings.

Do you have any stalls in your barn that get a LOT of sun during the day? I would talk to your BO and see if you can have your horse moved into a stall under a good sunspot. This will help dry out a lot of the puddles as well.

Ok if this were my horse, and I was paying board, I would flipping well be shouting my head off at the BO for not properly maintaining her facilities so my horse could be comfortable. If she won't let you put a sheet on her, or a fly mask, and her stall floors are mud and muck which is going to end up causing your horse to get thrush, I would just move my horse.
