Sadly each year a number of horses are stolen with few being recovered and returned to their owners. There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent being a victim of this distressing crime.

  • Ensure you field is secure and the gate is chained and padlocked.
  • Reverse the top hinge of your gate to make it impossible to lift off.
  • Avoid leaving the headcollar on your horse as this makes it easier to catch and do not leave baler twine around as it could be used as a restraint.
  • Lock away yard equipment, forks and shovels can be used as weapons and your wheelbarrow to carry away your equipment.
  • Have your horse freeze branded and security mark your equipment. Police are often unable to trace owners of unmarked property unless it can be identified.
  • Make sure your horse is checked throughout the day and night but not at the same time
  • Be observant, if things are wrong or items are missing, it may indicate there is a problem
  • Be aware of strangers and challenge them where possible but do not take risks with your own safety
