It's a big part of the day used up in driving, no matter how far the foot is on the gas pedal
Your horse will be in a rodeo so his legs are sound and don't need wrapped from that perspective.
I hauled three of my horses cross country twice and never wrapped their legs. They were in the trailer 8 - 11 hours daily until we reached our pre-arranged layovers.
As long as he hauls well (keep hay in front of him) I wouldn't wrap but on the other hand, you've already paid your money and you don't want him banged up
In the end, were it me, I would just load and go but others may look at this differently
Not much help
