The horse given by French President Emmanuel Macron to President Xi Jinping is now in a 30-day quarantine before being sent to a horse ranch, according to the Beijing inspection and quarantine authority.

During Macron's visit to China from Monday to Wednesday, he gave a horse of the elite French Republican Guard to Xi as a state gift, along with a saddle and saber.

The horse arrived in Beijing on Jan 4 by plane. It passed the strict inspection of the Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau and began the quarantine, said Wang Xiaojie, quarantine officer of the bureau.
