FEI published this video item, entitled “Olympic Horses arrive in Tokyo! #Tokyo2020” – below is their description.
Can horses fly? Well yes, they can if they’re #Olympic athletes!
And in a piece of history-making, 36 of them flew into Japan last night – the first full cargo load of horses ever to land in Haneda, the waterfront airport that serves the greater Tokyo area and which is now welcoming a very different group of Olympic athletes. The four-legged time travellers are all Equestrian #Dressage horses and include some Olympic superstars, among them Bella Rose, the mare ridden by Germany’s Isabell Werth, the most decorated Olympic equestrian athlete of all time.
