While the Australian eventing horse team for the upcoming Rio Olympic has yet to be announced, four hopefuls have recently been transported by Goldners Horse Transport and IRT to from Spendthrift Farm in Victoria, to Melbourne airport to head overseas where they could realise their dreams!
The four horses transported were;

With three grooms set to travel with the horses, it will be a long 30 hour flight with stopovers in Singapore and the UAE before heading to the United Kingdom for a pre Rio Olympic Games staging camp.
We wish the team the best of luck on the flight and once the arrive and are so proud to have played a small part in getting the team to their destination.
