Emotional support horse boards US flight 'for first time ever'

An emotional support horse is thought to have made history by boarding a flight from Nebraska.

Service horse Flirty accompanied Abrea Hensley - who suffers from pot-traumatic stress disorder and is allergic to dogs - on the flight to Chicago after a TSA agent promised to "make it as easy as possible".

As Inside Edition reports, it is believed to have been the first time in US aviation history that a miniature horse has flown on a commercial plane.

Hensley said: "She did really well. She was very quiet the whole flight."

However, some passengers weren't pleased with the scenes, and one complained to the publication.

She argued: "It's too big. What if it goes a little crazy? Starts kicking people. I don't think it's a good idea."
