Horses from around the world, including defending champion Valegro from Great Britain, have winged their way to Las Vegas for the 2015 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final and the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final. The competition gets under way this Wednesday, April 15, with the dressage warm-up.
I'll be winging my way to Sin City, as well, to bring you all of the news and excitement that only Vegas can offer. In the meantime, have you ever wondered how horses are transported by air? Then enjoy this short video from the FEI, which shows the European horses preparing to depart Schipol Airport in Amsterdam on Saturday, April 11. All arrived safely.
