Well, I have never shipped a horse over seas before. But I have heard of people doing it.
There is a pretty big driving show near where I live, and Most of the competitors live in Ireland, or Germany ect. 'Over there'.
And they ship there horses on a big airplane. However, the plane is probably a private one they own. Not commercial. (I think that's what youre going to be doing, commercial air line?)
Anyways, I guess its more common then you would think. I have heard that mostly all of the BIG air planes have stalls under the plane, where the horses go when traveling.
If you don't know much about it, I would contact someone from the airline company youre going to fly through and ask them about it. It wouldn't hurt.
Hope everything goes well when you do decide to move! I would LOVE to live In Hawaii. but its just to dang hot for me! hehe
