I have 2-horse stock and my qh prefers to face rear and look on cars behind (she wasn't very happy in slant and 2-horse straight). I agree it's too windy in winter, however I found it to be MUCH more cool and pleasant in summer (without any fan when we get back from ride it's pretty cool inside).
Hi Kitten. I just went to Lowes and purchased several sheets of 3/4 ply, a bunch of 2 1/2" bolts, large washers, nuts, and lock nuts. I lined the inside of the trailer with the ply and drilled holes through the wood and the metal on the trailer (from the inside out). I put the large washers and the head of the bolts through the holes from the inside and used the lock washers and nuts on the outside. If the bolts are too long you can cut them flush with the nuts, if they are too short, just get longer ones.
I marked the ply so that when I took it out in the spring, it would all line up when I reinstalled it in the winter.
My horses always face the rear if given a choice so having a blanket on them without the ply could be a bad thing since the wind would get under it. In fact it could cause a wreck if the blanket blows over their heads.
