In this June 14, 2013 photo, George Ehmer snaps a halter on his Appaloosa gelding named Joker, an air-scent trained horse, on his property near Milton-Freewater, Ore. Horsewoman Kate Beardsley of Redmond and Laurie Adams of Camp Sherman are assembling a team of a dozen air-scent trained horses and riders that they hope eventually will be deployed around the Northwest when hunters, hikers and others go missing.
