Stolen Tack

Stolen Tack

A large quantity of harness was recently stolen from the tack room at the stables at Castlemartyr.  It included a single and a pair set of harness.  A collection of bits was also stolen.  Please be on the lookout for this harness in case you are asked to buy it.  If you have any information please bring it to your local garda station or email it to the Society.  Be especially careful with your own harness as it is unlikely that this is an isolated incident.
