    Default Cost to import horse from Ireland or England

    Could anyone tell me the approximate cost to import a horse to the US from Ireland or England? I have had people tell me 10K door to door, and others 12K just airport to airport. Trying to find out about what it would cost "door to door", from barn in Ireland or England to our barn in AL.

    Thanks for any information!

    I had a quote 2 years ago for 7500 including clearing QT in NY. No tax to be paid on sale as these were for personal horses. Sorry that was 7500 euros not USD.

    Depends on the age of the horse too. Over 2 is more expensive I believe.
