FedEx will be handling some very special packages for the U.S. Olympic team this summer — horses.Earns+FedEx(2).jpg

That’s right, the 50 or so horses on the U.S. equestrian team will be FedExed to the London Olympic Games.

The 1,000-pound athletes will fly on a jet outfitted with custom-built stalls and will be served specially prepared in-flight beverages and snacks, including apple juice, carrots and Gatorade.
