HORSE REPORTED STOLEN FROM WOODRUFF, SC BOARDING FACILITY, – Atlas – South Carolina
Woodruff (Spartanburg County), SC Friday November 24, 2017
Atlas was last seen on Wednesday November 22, 2017. When the barn owner went to check on the horses Thanksgiving Morning, he was missing. Spartanburg County Sheriff Department has been notified and are actively investigating Atlas’ disappearance as a theft.
Ms. Hernandez asked Stolen Horse International aka NetPosse.com for assistance in locating her daughter’s horse. On November 24, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Ms. Hernandez and, in short order, began distributing the information via their NetPosse Alert (the horse community’s Amber Alert) on the Internet to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.
“Atlas is my daughter’s first horse.”, says Lori Hernandez, owner. “Atlas is like our baby. He is not broken to ride and can rear if he gets anxious.” Lori went on to tell us that her daughters are very upset over Atlas’ disappearance.
Jennifer Weaver, the owner of Twin Creek Equestrian Stable, informed Stolen Horse International that in the 35 years that her family has owned the farm, they have never had anything like this happen. They are worried sick.

“Circulating the flyer for Atlas as well as the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as he could be anywhere by now. These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible,” says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. “And remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post his flyer in public places as well.”
