World-Class Show Jumping Horses Arrive in Miami Beach
The 5* equine athletes arrived in Miami Beach by air for the first round of the Longines Global Champions Tour 2015 (2-4 April), carried in fine style by Emirates Airline and looked after by the Tour's long-standing shipping agent, Peden Bloodstock. Around 220 horses competed at the spectacular 10th Anniversary Season launch event and many flew over from Europe to take part at this landmark venue in one of the most highly-anticiapted events of the season.
When these valuable equine stars take to the skies, it's a Business Class flying experience. “It’s all about making the process as smooth as possible for the horses,” says Martin Atock, Managing Director of Peden Bloodstock. “If you’re flying economy with a budget airline and you face queues, poor service and restrictive seating on the plane, you get stressed, tired and you take longer to recover when you arrive at your destination. It’s the same when flying horses."
