    If your tack items were the only things stolen, I'd think it was an inside job. Do you have any enemies among the rest of the boarders? People can be petty and vindictive, and horse people are some of the worst.

    I do find it a little hard to believe that a thief would take ONLY your stuff, especially since by your own admission it's not top of the line. If they were going for things they could resell, I'd think they'd want to take the better tack.

    I'm a little surprised that your own grandmother won't help you out, as well as the BO. If they have tack they're not using, I don't see why it can't be loaned to you on a short term basis until you can replace yours.

    I've always kept my tack at home, because there are thieves and 'borrowers' everywhere. I do suggest once you replace your items, that you buy a locking tack trunk or keep them at home.

    Tack is expensive, but there are plenty of places to buy used items for not a lot of money. Good luck.

    Horseclicks seems to be very popular for hot items lately. Sorry that happened to you. I'm going to go out and lock up my trailer tack room now.

    After you file a police report, you should also go to local pawn shops or consignment tack stores & ask them to look out for your things. If you have pictures, that's a lot more helpful.
    And as you're able to replace your things, definitely buy or build a locking tack trunk.
    Good luck reclaiming or replacing all your stolen things.

    Thank goodness it costs you almost nothing to keep your horse every month. You will quickly be able to afford new stuff.

    Oooh, good point, Always.

    Yes, it's always nice when you're not actually paying to board somewhere. Makes it much easier to replace stolen items.

    I wonder if this would have happened if she paid to board somewhere?
    You usually get what you pay for ;)

    Well keep in mind, she has a good bit of "emergency money" set aside, so if she shops wisely she can afford the new/used tack and still have some change left over.

    We're only getting one side of the story, if the OP is irresponsible, doesn't properly care for tack and left her things laying around or unlocked while everyone else's things were properly stored and locked up (which could account for why only *her* things walked off), I wouldn't loan her her anything either!

    Very good point, Del.

    Grandma and Grandma's boyfriend/husband might be teaching the OP a lesson.

    Excellent points, Delfi! That could very well be it.
