Equine insurance policyholders offered equipment-marking session

Equine insurance policyholders in Bristol have been offered free tack marking by the local police force, after a spate of thefts in the area.

The Bristol Evening Post reported that a session in which owners can security code their equipment will take place on March 27th between 10:30 and 15:30 GMT at Equicraft in Backwell.

Police community support officers will be on hand to mark saddles and bridles, in order to make it easier to locate owners in the event of goods being stolen and recovered.

Those that are concerned about the risk of equine crime in the region will also have the opportunity to join the Avon and Somerset Constabulary Horse Watch Scheme, which advises on security and runs marking services.

The March 27th session is due to be the first in a series, with equine insurance policyholders that are unable to attend being encouraged to contact Nailsea Police Station for more information.

Last week, equine insurance policyholders in Gawsworth were urged to contact police if they had any information about the theft of a £30,000 horse-drawn carriage.
