Why is rearward facing horse transportation important?

Mainly for the safety and health of the horse. Studies have shown that stress levels are reduced in horses traveling in opposite direction of travel. If the vehicle has to brake hard, the horse's weight is transferred to it's hind legs, which are stronger than its front legs and so helps to keep it stable and less likely to panic. Research also indicates that horses traveling facing backwards show a more stable and consistent heartbeat than those traveling facing forwards.
