I too am curious about mats for this set up. I keep reading noise is a huge issue when lining tub/no carpet. This horse stall mat is interesting. If done right, I wonder if it gets rid of the some the noise. It is supposed to be fairly dense. Another thought I had was preventing dog claws from ripping off from the liner. Saw a kennel that had lined their lower walls and the claws would stick too well and rip off.
