The time that world class equestrians spend flying themselves and their horses to international events is mind-boggling. Let me tell you three things I have done, but still find daunting: 1) Flying internationally alone. 2) Flying domestically with a baby. 3) Packing and hauling a horse to an event. Basically, they’re doing all three of those things at once, and even with a team of people, it’s a lot. (I mean, at least horses don’t cry on the plane, as far as I know. But still.) My hats are off to our sport’s best who make it look easy!
