Lexington, Ky. – March 20, 2019 – The 2019 National Horse Show is pleased to welcome EquiJet, one of the premier domestic and international equine transportation companies, as the Official Equine Air Transportation Provider for the 2019 event when it returns to Lexington, Kentucky from Oct. 25 to Nov. 3, 2019. A returning sponsor, EquiJet will be making its second appearance at the National Horse Show with an expanded role in order to support the growing success of the historic competition and provide exhibitors with the best possible experience. “We are thrilled to have the support of EquiJet as our Official Equine Air Transportation provider.

With EquiJet on your side, transporting a horse doesn’t have to be difficult. Their team is well-versed at arranging flight plans, organizing quarantine, issuing proper documentation, and everything in between to get your horse door-to-door as safely, comfortably and efficiently as possible.

“Last year was our first time sponsoring the National Horse Show, and we undoubtedly wanted to advance our support for 2019 after experiencing the success of the event and witnessing first-hand why the horse show is still one of the premier competitions in the United States after all these years,” commented Bastian Schroeder, founder and president of EquiJet. “We are so proud to be able to play a greater role in the National Horse Show’s success this year, and can’t wait for the event and all of its festivities in the fall.”

As the Official Equine Air Transportation Provider of the 2019 National Horse Show, EquiJet will support the equestrian community as it continues its mission of providing owners and riders with seamless top-notch domestic and international equine transportation.
