I prefer a stock trailer over a "real" horse trailer. That is why I am selling our horse trailer and going back to a stock trailer.
You can haul horses loose or tied, for me it depends on how many horses I am hauling. I really love them for mares and babies. If I had to haul a couple of mares with their foals to the vet or the breeders, I could divide the mares with babies into their box stalls with the center cut gate.
You will also find that horses that normaly are hesitant about loading into horse trailer will hop right into a stock trailer, especially after they have ridden in it a few times.
Some might say that undesireable weather might be a con. Mine don't seem to mind it whether it is snowing, raining, or below 0. You can get plexi glass slats for it in the winter. But in the summer they have plenty of air flow.
