Horses left in trailers overnite

We do this when it rains or during a thunderstorm. We take the dividers
out of our four horse and turn it into two box stalls. We put lots of
straw on the floor, hang up their hay bags and put rubber tubs in the
corners for water. then we turn them loose in their own stalls. Works
nice. They stay dry and they are happy with it. Plus if they get
frightened about the lightening and thunder, we don't have to worry
about them going through the electric fence. They are safe and dry in
the trailer. Why would that be abusive? Your horses travel in trailers.
They are loose, have hay and water. Plus they are dry and safe. I don't
see the problem.
