    Is there a reason why he isn't flying from Stanstead in the UK Emily? The horse of mine that was exported went that way.

    If you plan on doing hunters with him, he's really got the rhythm and style for it, hasnt he?

    He's actually doing jumpers with me.* Hunters are the one thing that frankly I suck at and do not have the right trainer, saddle or bank account to succeed in. (*- ideally anyway.... but it's a horse... is anything ever guaranteed from planning to end game? )

    To fly to the US all the airlines are now going out of either Belgium or Holland. I got 6 different company quotes and all were on these routes. When I was looking at Irish horses I got as far as an Irish horse could in theory fly direct to Chicago (18 hours by road from me) or they might be able to fly to Belgium and then land and then re-board and go to NYC. That was going to cost a lot more.

    Poor Cudo almost was being picked up Weds for 2 nights in Manchester, then to Dover, then to Holland. Thankfully they swapped to his pickup today.

    As of this afternoon he is safely tucked in to his stall in Dover and supposedly doing well.

    Might be the cost - as a livery horse came from Bermuda to Chicago for quarantine then it flew Amsterdam from the USA then travelled by horse box to UK, through France and across to UK. It was cheaper that way so I imagine it is the same the other way round. As it went the long way round the world as it had something to do with time zone and airspace
