Horse sleeping in trailer in trail rides?
A while back my mom and I went trail riding at brown county trails. The horse camp is COVERED in walnut trees. These are usually okay, except for the weekend we went it stormed and these walnuts were dropping out of the trees like crazy. Unfortunately Brown County only has ties for horses, no stalls, and with these walnuts I really wished my horses has some shelter. In the morning, our trailer had a small dent in the top, the walnuts tore up the vent in the trailer roof of the lady next to us, and one of our neighbors horses had a huge lump on his head from where a walnut hit him on the face. Needless to say I don't plan on campihair there again unless they install some stalls for the poor horses, or cut down those walnut trees! This got me wondering, would I be safe to leave my horse in the trailer over night? Like if I removed the divider in my straight load so it was just one big open space and didn't tie my horse overnight? Idk. I don't think it sounds too safe, as horses weren't meant to be staying in the trailer overnight, but I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this. Could either be a clever idea or a VERY dangerous one.
