Importing horse from Germany

I am currently making plans to bring my 5-year-old mare
from Germany to the States.

I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has
had a similar experience to bring a horse to the States
from another country.

I am aware of the entry requirements for my Trakehner mare
but I also want to know more about the quality of care in
the quarantine stables at the point of entry and the state
where the horse will live.

I believe this is currently a three day stay in New York
and 1 month in ***ia where I plan to take her.

Also any information about the air transportation would
be helpful.

I have also heard of the disease called Potomac fever. Is
this still a big problem in the States and what more can
you tell me about it ?
