Training To The Mat:

We worked on training Asa, the two year old filly, to the mat. The "mat" can be anything, such as a door mat, a piece of plywood, a towel, a stepping stone, etc.

It's very similar to ground tying. It gives the horse a place to stand, his "mark" so to speak, for whatever reason it is needed: grooming, stand and stay, vet work, farrier work, etc.
