Roperchick, we are in Southwest Louisiana.

Kitten_Val, As I was taking the pictures (with my zoom lense) I noticed the marks. I put the camera down and went to check the horse. He had definitely been ridden. It is hard to tell from the far off pictures, but when I got to the horse, I could see where the saddle and girth had been. And, Jake is a pinto arabian and his markings are a light grey, so from far off, he just looks dirty lol.

I think that I may know who rode him. The couple down the road have the husbands kids every other week during the summer. They were here this week. I know that the woman use to have a stallion (but she couldn't control and got rid of him) that she kept in a pasture that is to the side of our back pasture. She did have a saddle at that time. These kids are not bad kids and I don't want to go accusing anyone because they are good neighbors. We will just watch and make sure that it doesn't happen again.

for safety though since you think someone was riding him i would put a sign on the fences saying no tresspassing or do not ride horses or something...so if by chance someone is riding your horse and gets hurt and you find them in the field hurt you will not be liable.

but he is a pretty boy :)

I would spread the word around your neighbors that you know someone rode your horse and you are looking for them. You want to press charges. That should keep them off your horse.

That is just too "out there"! Hope you can find out who was on your property. Definetely put up "no trespassing" signs.

Technically, also, if the horse was ridden off your property onto the neighbor's property, he is stolen.

Since he is of considerable value, that puts the 'crime' in a different ballpark than just trespassing and misuse of your property without permission.

There`s some good comments on the trespassing aspect of it so need to elaborate further on that. However, I notice he has a halter on. If not entirely necessary, perhaps remove it to make it less appealing and more difficult for a sneak ride.

I really think you have cause to talk to the parents. You don't need to accuse them, just state what happened, as you don't know it was them. Just ask them to keep an eye open, or have their kids tell you if they are aware of someone riding.

In addition to the no trespassing signs, it might be an idea to have one of those warning signs so you are not liable for any injuries.

Agreed, ask the neighbors to keep an eye out for strangers!
