Brazil and the European Union have found a solution for the import problem for horses attending the Olympic Games in Rio next year.European regulations for the transport of horses to foreign countries will be accepted for Rio 2016, so Maarcelo Pedroso, president of the Olympic Public Authority, said. This month, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture initiated a discussion about the import of European horses to Brazil. The authorities thought about relocating the riding competitions to another place. Now, however, the quarantine discussion has been finished – the horses can enter and leave the country without any trouble.
