I would understand if it was bareback with a halter rope. BUt lugging a saddle into a field with a bit is a lot of planning!

if you are super concerned about trespassers use a game camera can be purchased anywhere that sells hunting equipment

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.
I very much agree with Alex here.

I'm afraid though depending on state you can be still liable of someone's kid get on your horse on your property and is injured whether you have signs around or not. Crazy as it sounds, but I've heard about such lawsuits. So I'd spread a word that it happened, you are very upset, and you put up some cameras in field to get a prove for police/sheriff (even though you didn't ).

Well, mystery solved lol.

Seems the neighbor behind us had their son house sit while they were gone. They use to be rodeo people and my son had asked their son if he would ride the horse a couple of times, just exercise him a little, while he was gone. He has been keeping up with my son's progress and knew what was going on with the horse. But, my son told him to call me and let me know when he would be doing it. This all came to light when I picked my son up from camp today. And, when I got home, I checked the caller ID and my neighbors phone number was on the ID, apparently left before he rode.

So, I just jumped to conclusion and I'm glad that I didn't go storming over to the other neighbors house LOL.

Remove his halter. He won't be so easy for an intruder to catch. It he has girth marks there should be sweat marks on his back as well.
