Those periods weren't exactly the days of free movement of peoples.

Besides that, just looking at demographics, creatures immigrating as opposed to visiting is an exception to at the very least societal norms. Most of the change in this relatively isolationist world occurred after Twilight showed up in Ponyville.

At any rate, the main point is that since the Wonderbolts are technically a part of Equestria's military, she'd probably have to actually immigrate to Equestria first, at least for practical purposes.

Now that I think about it, considering griffins send representatives to Equestria such as delegates and athletes for the games and go to their flight schools/camps, what's stopping them from already producing the first non-pony Wonderbolt? The answer to that might be on topic here.

you are thinking WAY too hard about this buddy, it's a show with magical talking horses and creatures, I'm pretty sure she could become a Wonderbolt as long as she passed some sort of qualifier test, none of this legal stuff you're talking about

So your headcanon is that Equestria set up an open borders agreement with its new allies more or less simultaneously alongside becoming allies in the first place.

Griffinstone definitely has this kind of relationship with Equestria, having formed it over the course of multiple treaties spanning well over a millennium, but the hippogriffs have an equivalent diplomatic relationship after a song, the downfall of a mutual enemy, and a friendship education opportunity.

That level of diplomatic achievement does explain the confidence to put Twilight in charge asap. Apparently she accomplished more in less than a decade than Celestia could in centuries, at least diplomatically. Comparative national security records seem like more or less an even split that eventually favors Twilight.

I think it's a pretty big leap to assume Equestria has things like passports and visas, or that the Wonderbolts have entry requirements other than "can fly fast."

Travel seems to be pretty much at-will and legal residency seems to be "where your house is."

The biggest obstacle to this (besides age since that changes with time) isn't even that she's a hippogriff, but that she's not an Equestrian resident. She's there presumably on a student visa and living in dorms doesn't in and of itself effect her legal residency, which is currently on Mount Aris.

… I know that that was not your intention, but the way you phrased that comment almost made it seem like you don't think that Italians are humans.

I mean, if a human being half-Italian is being compared to a hippogriff being half-pony and half-griffon…

Right, and pegasuses live in the sky, so what??

A seapony isn't like a prairie dog (which isn't a dog at all). It's half-pony. Heck, a hippogriff is the bebeh of a horse and a griffon, ergo, they're half-pony the way a human can be half-Italian or w/e.
