Hampshire riding school burglary

A £12k car and specialist horse equipment has been stolen from a farm in East Hampshire.

Hampshire Police are looking into the burglary which took place between 9pm and 6.45am on Tuesday 1st April at Hewshott Farm.

The burglar is thought to have climbed through a window of the stables, between Liphook and Haslemere, where they removed keys to open storage containers full of equipment.

A John Deere HPX Gator 4x4 car worth £12,000 and a vast amount of horse tack was taken.

More than 28 leather saddles, from £300 to £3,000 were also taken, as the burglars used the stolen vehicle to transport the equipment across the fields towards the A3.

If anyone saw or heard anything at the farm or saw any vehicles on the A3 transporting the 4x4 vehicle and the tack please get in touch. The farm is in a rural location and the offender(s) have selected only the higher valued saddles and other items. This is detrimental to the riding school business as well as all the other riders at the stables who have had property stolen."
