    Aw crap! I didn't know this was even up for debate. I just got my first horse trailer and now don't even know if I should use shavings. My guy likes to pee in the trailer, so I was thinking put them just under where he would pee, not so much where he'd be standing, since I have rubber mats?

    I've hauled with and without and don't have any real feelings either way. I know when hauling with sawdust, it's more to clean at the end of the day IMO. I didn't notice the horses slipping anymore without the sawdust.
