Comfort, and boredom prevention are both key.
You should research where places along your journey are available to let your horses off for a little bit to stretch their legs and maybe nibble some grass for a few minutes are. Big horse transport companies have a number of spots across the country too.
Provide enough bedding under their feet to give some cushion to the hard rubber mats or floor boards, but not enough to lose traction, and on that, have rubber mats installed if not already.
Also, like anybody on long trips, boredom is bound to strike, so maybe throw some treat games like those lick-its where they both can reach, if they're interested, and making sure there is always plenty of hay in the feeder, so you don't have to worry about them resorting to less favorable means of entertaining themselves!
Hope this helps!!!
I am still under the impression that there is nothing alive quite so beautiful as a thoroughbred horse.
