Welcome to Gloucestershire Horsewatch, a scheme set up to connect all horse owners and riders with the intention of improving our security and communication. We aim to reduce rural and equine crime and, just like Neighbourhood Watch, much can be achieved through general awareness and a little effort from each individual. The scheme is nationwide and supported by most police forces.
You do not have to own a horse to become involved; we welcome all horsey people whether you just ride occasionally or own the local livery yard - by banding together we can be far more alert to what is going on locally or nationally.

If you are a victim of crime
If you are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a crime, report it to the police as soon as possible. If your horse or pony has been stolen advertise his/her description (including photographs) in the local press and radio. E-mail details to us so that they can be displayed on this web site. Also contact the national equine press, e.g., Horse and Hound and organisations such as World Horse Welfare (new name for ILPH) - they will be able to help you with the location of markets etc. Visit as many venues as you can, enlisting the help of friends when possible.

Further advice on all aspects of crime prevention can be obtained free of charge from your area’s Crime Reduction Officer who can be contacted through your local police station. If you have any information about crime but do not want to identify yourself call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 - you may earn yourself a cash reward.
