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.
