ConfIrmation is the process of supporting a statement by evidence.
You are wanting confOrmation, which is the shape or proportionate dimensions, especially of an animal.
So basically, conformation is looking at how the horse is put together. There are good and bad qualities that people look for when they go to purchase (or possibly lease) a horse.
The question about the ideal stable is going to be greatly varied. Not everyone does the same thing, or has the same set up. If you were more specific, we might have a better chance at give you a great answer, compared to a poor answer.
And just for example, I like to use peat moss for bedding, which is not that common. A lot of other people bed with shavings or straw. Heck, some people even bed with paper shredding!
