Update on the case of Dannah's stolen tack at Ft. Worth Stockyards | Crime
UPDATE: We received an email from Dannah's mom to tell us how things went in the story of her daughter's missing tack:
"I would like to update you on my daughters english tack that was stolen from Fort Worth Stockyards in April. We have been blessed by a very nice lady giving my daughter a saddle to use until we could replace hers, a gift certificate from a fellow show person, and a girth and pad were purchased by a family member."
"We were given word from the insurance company that they would be giving my daughter enough to replace her tack so I took her to Dover Saddlery in Dallas today and she picked out everything. I have enclosed a pic of her with the sales associate and the new tack."
"We never recovered the stolen tack but with God's Blessings have been able to continue to show and now provide my daughter with all that was taken from her. Thank you so much for sharing the story of the theft."
We are happy that Dannah has what she needs to continue to compete now!
A local woman took her 12-year-old daughter, Dannah, to participate in a pony show; it was meant to be an exciting day for this young lady.
You see, Dannah has been devoted to riding horses since she was 7 years old, and has a great talent for riding, jumping, and all that's involved in the sport. She's won many awards already in her short equestrian "career."
She worked hard, doing chores and odd jobs to save money to earn the things she needed for this sport, including her saddle, leathers, peacock stirrups, leather girth, and extra thick white English pony pads.
As Dannah and her mom were passing through Fort Worth Sunday, pulling the horses and equipment in the trailer, severe weather caused them to seek shelter. They pulled into the Fort Worth Stockyards for safety, backing the trailer up against a pipe fence and locking it up for safety before going inside.
While they sought shelter indoors, someone outside broke the door's latch, opened it as far as they could, and stuck their arm inside to find something to steal.
Through the gap in the door, they were only able to reach one thing: Dannah's bag of equipment that she had worked so hard for. They managed to pull it through the gap in the door and take off with it.
Of course, Dannah is very upset at the loss of over $1,000 worth of gear. It will take a long time for her to be able to buy this all back again, so she and her mom hope that the stolen tack can be returned to her.
If you have any tips about this crime, please call Dannah's mom at <?xml:namespace prefix = skype /> (903)722-1601 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, neighbors.
