This weekend, 43 of the world’s best horses competing at the upcoming Longines Masters of Los Angeles landed at LAX on an Emirates SkyCargo Boeing 777-F plane after an 11-hour flight from Liege, Belgium.

After being unloaded from the Emirates SkyCargo freighter the world class equestrian athletes arrived at the Long Beach Convention Center to prepare for the event taking place from September 29 – October 2.

The Longines Masters of Los Angeles is the American leg of the prestigious Longines Masters Series that also takes place in Paris and Hong Kong. The Longines Masters of Los Angeles partnered with Emirates SkyCargo, one of the largest international airline cargo operators in the world, for the safe transportation of the 43 horses.

Immediately upon their arrival at the convention center, the 43 horses were escorted to the stables. There they will remain in quarantine for 48 hours before uniting with their rider teammates before the competition kicks off on September 29th.
