You are lucky! My qh does her business when she feels like it en route (paint never does though). Smells nasty too...

Oh yuck..... If I had a horse like that then I would for sure keep shavings in the trailer.

My trailer I bought came with solid rubber mats, will this cause the wood floor under to rot?

I actually take mats off from time to time and let those boards dry.

The shavings in a trailer are not there to absorb the urine after the horse has urinated. They are there to allow the animal to be comfortable enough on a longer trip to urinate as the urine will not splash up on their legs like it will on a hard surface. Short trips - keep teh trailer clean - long trips put some shavings down.
