I'm thinking about moving and I want to take my horse with me. Is it possible to fly a horse or will I have to drive her?

It's very possible, but a bit expensive.

Driving may be a cheaper, safer option.

yes you can fly your horse.Planes with horses on them are not as rare as it use to be. Your best bet would be to try and get on a load of horses heading in the same direction as you are going. Tex Sutton is very popular with the flying of horses.

yes it is very possible to fly your horse, but it is very pricey and sometimes scary (for the horse) to fly. You can hire someone to drive your horse wherever you want to move. We do. There are many companies you can find to do so.

Yes you can ship a horse on an airline. Keep in mind that it can be very stressful to your horse and once your in the air there is no turning back. Some horses panic and in severe cases must be euthanized. Air travel is usually reserved for international travel. If possible, I would advise you to drive.

Yes you can fly your horse on an approved cargo flight for equines. It is pretty expensive.

Yes, it is. I remember years ago when I traveled overseas the Mexican jumping team of horses was on board below deck.
