Stock trailers - sawdust/shavings

I'm not sure it's appropriate place to put my question, but...

Does anyone on forum use stock trailer to haul the horse(s)? If so do you use sawdust/shavings in it? I really like the idea of using sawdust, but my concern is with all these holes on sides the rain gets in and make it really wet.

I think the main reason for using shavings in the trailer is it gives the horse better traction when the mats/floor gets wet. If the rain is coming in while your going down the road I would continue to use the shavings even if its a soppy mess to clean out. Better safe then having a horse slipping around on wet mats or floor.

Interesting... I was always thinking it's to absorb the pee. But good point, Vida. Better to keep small layer in.

Prefer straw for trailering, its a little easier to clean up. But yeah, sawdust works too.

Folks, now I'm completely confused... :) At the other forum I was told with sawdust (shavings) it gets more slippery, than rubber mats. So what is the real situation - gets more slippery with shavings or less??
