Windowless trailer?

Hi all, new here and new to owning a horse (or will be!). We have found two horses for our family that ended up being farther than we'd been expecting. Our neighbor was offering to haul for us, but that was when we were looking within 15 miles or so. The horses we decided fit us best, and us them, are about 70 miles away. We do have a large, enclosed trailer that my husband and his dad are telling me will work fine. They've all owned horses before. They are planning to divide the trailer in half, but there aren't windows.

Another neighbor (they own several horses) did tell us that our trailer would be fine. I guess I'm not convinced and am looking for some more thoughts.

Any help??

Horses put off alot of body heat. That trailer will be like a sauna real fast without ventalation. I pulled my horse in a 2 horse trailer with the windows all shut. I forgot to open them, on a 50 degree day. An hour later when I arrived at the park my horse was sweating and the inside of the trailer was warm.

We just looked and there are 2 open vents in there. I think we'd probably hit 40 degrees tops, most likely closer to around 30-35 degrees.

You should get a proper horse trailer, Not some paneled cargo trailer. To many bad things can happen.

Good decision. I would have suggest you get in the trailer in the dark and see how clostrophobic you were.
