Hampshire Horsewatch group is holding a free tack marking session on Saturday 13 June and is inviting anyone whose tack is not postcoded to come along.

The session will be held at West Croft Livery Yard on Havant Road, Hayling Island, from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

Police forces around the country are often left in the unenviable position of having to return tack they believe has been stolen to suspects because they have no way of proving it belongs to someone else.

If you postcode your tack, and all other items of your horse equipment, it can be easily returned to you.
