Trailer cushions and butt-bars?

Does anyone know how to make trailer cushions for the back and sides of a trailer? I got a 2 horse trailer and want to put cushions in it, but I don't know what I would use to make them. Any ideas?

Oh, and what is the purpose of the butt bars? Someone from my barn said that they aren't important, and someone else said you have to have them. Any opinions?

What sort of trailer did you get? Photos of the interior would be helpful in advising how best to approach the padding (general idea, foam against wall and vinyl/etc over it and attached to the wall).
With our little two horse straight-load, the butt bars keep our girls from resting their butts (and weight) on the doors - which can be damaging.

Welcome to the forum and are the curtains for temporary use or are you looking to make it permanent? I would not put curtains up with horses in side when they start blowing that could send a horse over the edge. You could use any material to make curtains

Trailer Pads

Don't fuss with the screws. Buy some aluminum pop rivets. They look nicer and last longer.
