You can get you horse used to traveling before going this far. I have plenty of trails to train at home, but plan a few day trips before big rides, within an hour drive, to get my mare used to hop on the trailer, ride, go home. Then, you can also practice camping with your horse, even at home or where you board.
If you split the training in little bites, it won't be such a big chunk to swallow at once, when you get to the real ride. You will also get to know your horse in different settings and learn what works or not.
