I heard of a brand new monarch round pen being nicked from Dorset last week, and another stable had gates lifted of hinges and a quad bike that was locked and wheel clamped taken,.

Sooo much thieving going on.. its disgusting.

..and where do all these 2nd hand saddles go, try to sell one and no-one is interested.

It's awful. Why am I not shocked at the fact it will most likely turn up at Appleby? We had a twin axle caravan nicked years ago. The day before we had asked some people to kindly get the hell off the yard as they were snooping in the stables and trying tack room doors!

Now we have a gate system rigged up and try and keep each other informed about suspicious activity. We usually know first because of our large car park that we are always asked does it require re-tarmacing. hmm probably get flamed on here, but there is a sector of the travelling community that give the rest a bad name.

They seem to have been really helpful. One of the vehicles that was used in the robbery has been found. The yard owner has got back a neat pile of numnahs (found in some woods), a couple of bridles (found in the vehicle) and some random leather bits, but the police think that it will turn up at Appleby Fair.

I really hope they get some of it back, it's bloody awful when you scrimp and save in order to be able to indulge your love of horses, and someone just comes along and helps themselves to it angry

Bloody terrible. I'll copy and paste to my facebook group for my yard. What did the police say or do I already know the answer to that? hmm

Not sure if this is allowed, but nothing ventured....

If anyone has info, would they get in touch with Notts Police, please? Many thanks in advance. (I'm not affiliated with this yard at all, merely passing info on)
