Miniature Horses Are Now Cleared For Takeoff On Planes


If you thought people claiming to have service dogs on planes was getting out of hand, wait until you hear the new rules on service animals. It seems the U.S. Department of Transportation has chimed in as to what animals are acceptable to bring on planes as service animals.

“With respect to animal species, we indicated that we would focus our enforcement efforts on ensuring that the most commonly used service animals (dogs, cats, and miniature horses) are accepted for transport as service animals,” the department said in a statement.

Seems that miniature horses are also known to make great service animals. They can live as long as 35 years, generally, stand about 2 to 3 feet tall and weigh around 100 pounds when fully grown.

The statement also clarifies that animals outside of dogs, cats and miniature horses must be accepted or denied flight on a case-by-case basis.

Airlines will face fines if they don’t abide by these new guidelines.
