Exclamation Horse Thiefs in the Cumbrian Area (UK)

Friends have told me that there have been reports of stolen or horses marked for stealing in the Cumbrian area. Also keep a very close eye on horses, movable field shelters, tack, etc at the time of Appelby horse fair as they go missing very easily- and not just around Appelby.
Thank you for reading

Is this in Cumbria, England near the Lake District by any chance?

99% of the time, its the riders fault.

@LadyNeigh - First, let me wish your horses well and safe from such thievery. I can't possibly imagine how devastated I would be if I were to lose my beloved mare!
As for the inquiry about the Cumbrian area, your post caught my eye immediately, as I have traced my husband's family name to that area - "Askam", derived from the town or province of "Askham" which was the name of a Lord, apparantly with history dating back to the thirteenth century.....
I also greatly admire Beatrix Potter, and have read her biography and viewed a tremendous movie based on her life. It is made clear that 1000's of acres of the Lake District still exist due to her wonderful vision and forethought in buying it.
I would be thrilled to learn more of your area, and thank you.
Back to the horses..... I truly hope the thieves are caught and given due punishment!

Wales! How beautiful that must be! I've wanted to visit there for years - there is a tremendous book I've read titled, "Castles In The Air", written by an English couple who purchased Gwydir Castle in or near Snowdonia (Snowdon?). Full of amusement, drama, and dry humor as they had struggled to restore a tumble-down castle that is now just superb! Perhaps you've seen it??
