Business class for horses
Intradco can provide clients with professional flying grooms to accompany horses throughout the transportation process. With racing, show jumping and other equestrian events representing a truly international business, the team travels with horses all over the world.
Keeping horses comfortable, fed and well-hydrated during the flight are just some of the key responsibilities the grooms undertake during flights – as well as continually monitoring the temperature-controlled conditions inside the aircraft.
