This weekend, 44 of the 5* level international horses riding in the upcoming Longines Masters of Los Angeles on October 1-4, landed at LAX on one plane after an 11 hour flight from Liege airport in Belgium. After being unloaded from their Boeing 777 Emirates Cargo plane, the athletes caravanned down the 405 and arrived at the Los Angeles Convention Center at approx. 6:30am. This is the second consecutive year the LACC has hosted a Show Jumping competition, and was one of the largest transportation of horses in the world; horse racing transports 5-6 at a time.
Immediately upon their arrival, the 44 horses, most of which are Olympians, were escorted in the stables built out underneath the Convention Center and will remain in quarantine for 48 hours before uniting with their American competitors.
