A few pages into Chapter 1 we find that the cargo is sugar and molasses.  The horses were from Connecticut, and they were shipped to Barbados to pay for the sugar and molasses.  Kit is traveling to America from Barbados, and although the hold is now filled with sugar and molasses, she can still smell the "unbearable stench" left by the horses.
