That is a smart idea.

I would never unload a horse unless it is for an over night stop. I quit giving hay because it dehydrates them and they typically won't drink while traveling. I have hauled 16 hours straight many times with out any issues.
I did accompany a friend on a long trip and he stopped at lunch and dinner breaks, untied there heads and gave them hay and water and rest for at least a half hour. He also kept them in the trailer over night the same way and they traveled well.

Actually all of the horses will need current coggins paperwork and health certificates before they cross the state line. The vet will need to know the location where the horses are traveling to. If a horse is not up to the trip, a good vet will not issue the health certificate.

Ah, that's good. We don't have that here. The only time a horse is stopped from crossing provincial borders is if there's been an outbreak of some communicable disease like Horse Sickness, West Nile, Strangles...etc. Then all travel is shutdown completely with no horses moving in or out. (Of course, that doesn't stop some people, who take the chance to move their horses anyway - we don't have much in the way of border security between provinces).

It is not 'cool' to ride without a helmet! period.
