I always put in a hay bag, even for a 5minute ride. If the horse is newish to trailering, my trainer shows the hay bag to the horse, lets it take a couple bites, then has it watch her put it into the trailer. Most of the pigs, jump right on in the trailer after that hay!
Only issue I ever had with feeding hay was my old QH would NOT get off the trailer if she had any hay left. When I delivered her to a trainer, he and I got really tired of waiting for her to finish her hay and wandered off. She emptied the hay bag, hopped off the trailer and stood there patiently waiting for us to come back! Silly pig!
