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!
Searchers are welcoming all volunteers to help in the search, especially those able to search by horseback, with dogs and drones. Please call or text Shawna Kramer at at (760 )880-1714 versus messenger on Facebook.
Stolen Horse International, Inc.,™ reports with the latest information on the search efforts.
"We need people to search, help with coordinating. This is his second night with a saddle UNDER his belly, bridal and rope reins. He is a new horse. Never been on this trail and only out twice. We believe he is not on the trail and is stuck somewhere. We have 3 riders set up for tomorrow morning. Most horses ride 2 together for safety. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
