Small mesh hay nets. Tie loose so they can hang their head low.

Not so loose and low that they can pull it off or get caught up in it. Its not going to hurt a horse to eat from a bag level with his nose. I tie haybags maybe level with the bottom window sill and to the side so their view isn't obstructed. And I don't want their heads down low in a trailer.

Sorry, I meant tie the horse looser. And the small mesh hay nets have super small holes that slow down the horse eating AND the horse can't get a hoof stuck in them. Keep in mind that shod horses can get their shoe stuck in the net.

casey ill tell you a story and it happend whilst tricky roled near the wall he got stuck upside down the nylon of the hay net went inbetween the hoofs and his shoe and the livery yard owner found him like that.
That was an eye opener and he cut him free.
Horses do the most crazy things there was loads of room in his stable but
Things happen though.

Short hauls - yes. Haybag, high enough, rope loose enough Cowboy can get his nose barely below his knees on a stressed rope. He is a quiet shipper, though.

Long hauls- no. They get a flake every other time we stop for water. Makes them need more eater so... we go without shipping anything over 2 hours (not really ling, but long enough...)
