Searchers look for missing horse lost near Trommald


Courtnie Smith may have expected a quiet horse ride with a friend Thursday, but what happened next created a mystery and started a search party.

Now the 18-year-old is out searching for a lost 5-year-old thoroughbred named Jagger.

Smith was riding Jagger Thursday along the snowmobile trails. They were about a mile from her home near Trommald when Jagger bucked and dislodged her. The normally sweetly dispositioned horse was acting anything but.
