Do horses really fly? Of course they do!
Horses have been transported by airplanes since the 1956 Olympics in Stockholm. They needed a way to be able to transport horses overseas to big events and horse shows such as the Olympics. So out of their need to fly, large cargo planes designed with stalls for each horse were used. When horses needed to be transported to the Olympics in 1956, stalls with sides of plywood were used. Now, more efficient rubber stalls are used, but back in the 50s, plywood was all that was available. Something interesting is that when the horses landed in Stockholm, they didn’t have trucks or trailers to transport the horses, so the riders rode the horses many miles just to get to the Olympic grounds.
