If someone is sneaking someone else's horse I doubt it will get a good grooming. I had a hunch someone was riding my mare. We inadvertently create routines and they were waiting until I left. Instead I drove a few miles, waited about 45 min. And caught them in the act. It was a father and his son and young daughter of about 12. He sputtered all kinds of excuses when he saw my car pull up. What kind of example does that set? I reminded him that he had stolen my horse, not borrowed it as he had not asked my permission and that the law would likely pay him a visit. The daughter began to cry as she thought her dad would get carted off to jail. I ignored it and went back to the barn and waited. The dad tried to apoligize but I was dead as a post. He no longer "borrowed my horse or anyone else's. I let them worry about what the neighbors would think if a cruiser and two officers came calling.
