A hiring company around me have cameras, full insurance and everything totally piece of mind knowing your trailer floor ain't going to drop off and your horse is safe.
My advice to you would be to just hire a sound, insured trailer, it's not worth risking horses life. :)
Oh my, I would not endanger my mini. This is a brand new heavy duty trailer with 5/4 decking for flooring. The wooden enclosure is bolted to the frame with hardened bolts. I have a stall mat inside. She is cross tied. I only go 5 miles away with her. This trailer hauls my 25hp diesel bucket loader, I guess it can carry a miniature horse.
