I tried crushed limestone a few years ago..almost like road base and it worked well but because we didnt have gutters on the barn it washed alot of it out. But it compacts really well, its what they use before they put cement in. I had it in the corrals, not the stalls. Was thinking about putting it in the barn since I just have the dirt floors but havent got around to it..my husband didnt like in in the corrals because the horses were white from laying down:) Just recently bought some decomposed granite..got to say Im impressed. Its pricier than some, I was a little worried because when it came it had some small stones in it but its not getting in the horses feet and staying, and they are liking it. Its cruchy at first when they walk on it..but the drainage factor is awesome. I had nothing but mud from the new topsoil my hubby put in the corrals before it rained here, and now with the granite Im not having mud issues at all.. you can also use it for the barn areas although if you put it in stalls they recommend bedding or mats be places over it.
