Found plenty for bringing a horse here FROM France...but none saying what to do to go to France?
Any ideas? Anybody on here from France? The town is Fougerolles.
Waw that is quite the move! Would be fun if you know it won't last and you can come back here. Parle tu Francais?
Call your nationel vet association. They will give you all the info you need. There is going to be a lot of quarantine involved and blood work (quarantine you can do yourself if you have the facility). It was going to cost me about $10,000 for the flights from France to Canada (for a box of 2 horses).
Call your local vet clinic, they will guide you from there and give you all the right information. Because of the expense and the risks of a failed blood test or other, I would honestly suggest leaving the horses here.
