WEST AUCKLAND WARNING; From Natasha Smith
I am writing this afternoon because at approximately 16:40 this afternoon my grazing in Whenuapai found out that one of our containers that holds a lot of mine, and multiple other riders, gear had been robbed. Nobody had been at our paddocks during the day and so would probably have been robbed sometime during the night.
Among the things that were stolen there seemed to be a "grab as much as you can" theme as well as the obvious expensive things... saddles, bridles, helmets etc.
The container holding all of this gear in was padlocked and so would have had to be forced from the container, there were seperate lockers inside the container who's padlocks were also ripped from their hinges and the container as a whole was trashed with draws being opened and everything of the likes.
In saying all of this please make sure that if you live in the Greenhithe, Whenuapai, Hobsonville, Kumeu area PLEASE lock all of your gear etc. away tonight because I do distinctly remember that the Greenhithe Pony Club was Robbed earlier on this year. I do not wish for this to happen to anyone, I can no longer ride until I have been able to replace all of my gear that has been taken.
Lastly, if ANYBODY hears anything, absolutely ANYTHING about Horse gear being Sold that you know those people didn't have before yesterday night, then please contact myself, or any of the people listed below, it would be a massive help.
