  • On Wednesday, July 24, the first shipment of horses was made by plane from Zaragoza to Mexico.

    The horses were taken in a special animal vehicle from the quarantine site in Madrid, where they had been kept for a month, to the Zaragoza airport.

    After 4 hours of travel, the truck arrived at the Zaragoza airport loading dock. The horse stall was then positioned to receive the horses.

    Just half an hour before the flight the horses were taken to the plane, to avoid noises that could disturb or frighten them. Once on the plane, they were checked to make sure they were calm and were given food and water for the trip. The groom who accompanied them on the trip kept them calm and comfortable during the trip.
