Could you have something like a chain running down the wall behind your saddles and such, and use small locks to attach things to it you don't want taken? I don't think you need to make it so it can't be taken, but if you just make it so it isn't easy to take things, then people generally don't. Or you could loop a chain through a few things, like your head stall, bridle, etc and then secure it with a lock?
It can be really irritating when people take things, but I can understand your reluctance to leave. Now that you have mentioned it to the owner, maybe it won't happen again.
