Monxton and Upavon have been unsettled by incidents involving horses this week.
In Upavon, Prince an 18 month old, 14hh horse was stolen from a field overnight on the 8th August. After an extensive Facebook campaign, police were alerted to Prince’s whereabouts and he was reunited with his owners.
On the same evening/early morning in Monxton, the gate to a horse paddock was left open.
The horse’s owner managed to retrieve the escaped horse without incident.
The police would like to remind the public to ensure that any gates are always secured behind them if out walking in the rural areas.
