    Well, people would sure pay attention to you. Let's not even get into the safety of a glass vehicle. I imagine on a hot day it would smell simply marvelous inside.

    They know they're strong I guess. I am a child passenger safety technician (fancy name for car seat installer) and one of my biggest soap boxes is safe travel. Kids use car seats, dogs use crates, adults use seatbelts, projectiles are contained. I always tell parents that your purse or diaper bag can do a lot of damage in a crash, so think of what an unrestrained dog could do to you. Now I can say "think of what a horse flopping around your car can do."

    I have to agree or they are a front for a radical group of animal rights actives.

    Um, glass is even more dangerous when it's broken than metal is.....

    Glass breaks allot easier than metal, even safety glass.

    I don't think they would use glass. It's too heavy and for a vehicle like this you want it to be as light as possible. Also in the event of a kick or something from the horse the glass would be compromised. Besides, it doesn't look like glass (to me), more like a plastic.

    Honestly I don't think its that bad. Horses are used as work horses all the time. I do think ventilation/temperature is a key issue but its not discussed on the website.

    The website itself states that this is for advertising and tourism purposes. A horse spending an hour or something in there, advertising a new green product or something else isn't too bad, as long as the horse is comfortable, not over worked and well trained for what its doing.

    Yes, there can be accidents but to me the kind of thing this is would be an advertising tool in a tourist/pedestrian square, not a road vehicle.
