I understood it as a cash reward from how it was worded..
I haven't heard anything about a missing kid, nor has anyone in my family (majority watch the news or read the papers). I feel as though that itself is the biggest issue with the story. Not the fact that a horse just up and disappeared from a scheduled flight.

What fairgrounds was this flyer listed at?

Hookstown. It was hung on one of the stalls (where the owner/previous owner had her 4H groups horses) in the barns closest to the horse arena.

Why not ask the 4-H group about it, can you call an adviser or talk to a parent who was there at the fair alot?

Well, I'm not really on good terms with anyone that goes anymore, sadly. One girl turned half of them on me because she was jealous my horses turned out better than hers (she deems herself the best trainer in our area), and my old lease-holder bad mouthed me to the rest :/

Her son is the only one that will actually talk to me, but he's only allowed to use the phone to talk to her or his step-dad.

I already tried asking her for more information so that I could help (mainly because of this forum), but surprise, she ignored me, in person and over text.

This all seems to be a bit up the wall.
Unless things have changed a great deal, which, with the extra airport security, I very much doubt, it is all seems impossible to have occurred.

For a starters no minor would be allowed to travel with their horse, this has to be done by an experienced groom. The child would be travelling as a regular passenger.

You cannot just 'get on a wrong plane' with a hire. It is hard enough to do just as a passenger, correct boarding passes have to be shown.
The horse would have had to be in airport stabling and crated to be loaded, they are hardly likely to load onto the wrong plane.

Even if it did happen it would be easy to trace where the horse was sent to as this animal would have to be unloaded at one point or another.

The fact that the OP is not on good terms with anyone seems strange because in situations like this people forget their differences and bond together in a common search.

What I do know is Tucker is still a minor, so I would imagine the ticket was bought by a legal adult. Either of his parents or owner/old owner of this horse (I can't see her selling this gelding, maybe free leased) would have bought the tickets I would assume.

And just because I saw the thread that got closed earlier about "fantasy posts"..this isn't one of them(;
Not sure if that's what a few of you were insinuating or not, just making a point.

I'm honestly beyond confused because I feel that the police and airlines would have had this sorted out within a few days, not however long they've been trying to find them apparently. I had no idea Tucker went missing too, I was originally told that this lady's horse (her personal show horse) went missing from the airport.
Next time I'll definitely be going to look for myself before I say/think anything of it.

Okay..now I'm even more confused. Apparently owner is asking a friend of mine to take Ace.
Tucker is a 4h member of said owner's 4h group.

Apparently the horse isn't missing anymore.

The kid, Tucker, I haven't heard anything about.

I really wish I would've gotten a picture of this flyer she had up.. :/
