The TSA has a handy “Can I bring my … through the security checkpoint” tool on its website which makes it clear that ice hockey sticks, field hockey sticks and “sports equipment that can be used as a bludgeon (such as bats and clubs) is prohibited in the cabin of the plane and must be transported in your checked baggage.”
But what about the stick ponies I spotted being sold in at least three shops at Dallas Love Field?
During my three hours hanging out at DAL earlier this week I didn’t see any small children (or adults) throwing tantrums for being relieved of their ponies at the aircraft doors, so I assume traveling with stick ponies is just fine.
But I’m still scouring the TSA app and will ask for a formal ruling…

One thought on “May I take my pony on the plane?”
i can take my cane on board when I am having bouts of arthritis, not much different from a stick pony.
