At the heart of the Equitrans flight service are our flying grooms, each with more than 15-years experience in equine flight operations. Hailing for the UK and Europe, their overall equine experience extends back through many decades.
Over the years, some of the biggest names in racing, polo, endurance and show jumping have trusted the Equitrans flying grooms to ensure their top-class horses travel in the upmost safety and comfort.
The work of a flying groom begins before the horses arrive ensuring the aircraft is fully prepared, plus final checking of paperwork and various other pre-flight operations. During flight, our grooms are consistently monitoring and attending to each horses needs including feeding, watering and administering veterinary care should the need ever arise.
Once the horses arrive, the flying grooms then ensure the paperwork is in order and handover to the ongoing driver is completed.
