Stolen Tack at Rancho dos Palmas in Del Mar

Dear All,

I'm heartbroken to report that our personal tack room was broken into and two valuable saddles and two bridles stolen. In particular I am sick at the loss of the Black Rhino, my favorite saddle that fits all our horses and as importantly, fits me…and Black Rhinos are not made any more.

Please keep a look out and let me know if you hear/see of anything. I have serial numbers for both saddles as well as original receipts. Please pass this on through our equestrian community. Thank you for any help you can offer.
