The only time I have had issues with things going "missing" is when I was at a barn with some younger kids who liked to "borrow" what they didn't have or wanted. :-S

I agree that a talk with the BO and a note or sign will probably bring the bridle back and if it doesn't I would discuss with the BO about the possibility of doors/locks being put on the lockers to keep this from happening again, as it was either a honest mistake, or borrow and you will get it back or sadly there is likely someone with sticky fingers and you don't need more stuff taken

I know a lady who embroidered all her blankets with large hot pink initials to keep people from "borrowing" them as she had that issue when boarding, she also made sure to buy all brightly colored supplies and initial them so you could see them "walking" away she said it worked well!

I hope you find it! Remember to check all the places you know it isn't

Thanks everyone for responding!!

I put a note up on her stall door describing it, the last time and location I used it and at the end said that I probably left it somewhere and would appreciate it if everyone could keep their eyes open.

I was all alone at the barn too, so I decided to snoop through the other lockers. I never look at the other boarder's stuff unless asked to, but felt I had a right this time. Anyway...I found it hanging up in one of the teenager's lockers behind another bridle. I took down my sign and left a message for the BO to handle it.

I will be putting electrical tape on my bridle and I am debating about taking my saddle home, but since I go to the barn after work I would have to leave it in my car all day and I think that is worse.

Thanks again!!!!

I would ask or leave a message for everyone at that barn, and continue looking for it. If you research everywhere and you can't find it, and no one has responded, post a reward sign (not saying how much.) this might interest the person who maybe took it, to return it. Hope you find it!
