Search for missing horse in Cuyamaca State Park Continues - Searchers Needed

10 August 2016

Help find Royal. Join the search. Details in this article.

SAN DIEGO - Searchers have been combing the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, looking for Royal, a 10-year-old Quarter Horse gelding that ran off on Dyar Springs Trail on August 7, 2016.

Royal threw his rider and dashed off fully tacked and bucking because his saddle has slipped underneath his body. He was last seen  heading south toward Harvey Moore Trail. 

He has not been seen since despite the many efforts on the ground and in the air to find him. Royal’s owners have done an amazing job of creating and distributing a flyer immediately and in daily searches but desperately need more help!
