You are reading this correctly. Southwest Airlines is now allowing miniature horses on their planes. I feel like the odds of people having miniature horses that need to travel is quite slim but I could be surprised. They will be allowed with cats and dogs starting September 17th.
As long as they are a fully-trained psychiatric service animal, the tiny equines will be one of only three species allowed on board after the new policy kicks in next month. The new policy also says that passengers can also fly with an emotional support dog or cat as long as they have a doctor’s note. Each passenger is only allowed to travel with one animal on each flight.
