Tack is a significant investment for horse owners, so why not take extra precautions to keep it safe?
Most of these tips are no-brainers to every horse owner. Unfortunately, that statement is not always true.
The old saying, 'An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, is so true", says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. "We want equipment to stay where it is supposed to be, as well the horses. Keeping both safe is part of the mission work of our nonprofit organization. We want people to protect their equipment and horses before the worst day of their agricultural life begins."
These tips remind tack owners that sometimes the simplest things overlooked cause the most money and heartache after equipment disappears.
One of the best ways to keep tack organized in a proof of ownership file is with NetPosse ID. Stolen Horse International's NetPosse ID Record-Keeping, a database developed from over 25 years of working with victims, is accessible anytime on the phone.
"We have worked with thousands of victims over two decades. The NetPosse ID registry is like no other type of registry worldwide. The positive and negative experiences of NetPosse victims are the inspiration behind the registry. We throw everything in it but the kitchen sink."
