UK Horsewatch Alliance has been in existence since 2006. The Alliance comprises of a number of Horsewatch Groups from around the country. Invariably the Horsewatch Groups are based on a county structure. Some Groups are police managed, others are managed by volunteers within the County. Those persons who manage Horsewatch Groups maintain contact with one another via Social Media to provide a network of information and support to the equine community in order prevent equine crime. Initially the Alliance members would meet annually in addition to providing regular bulletins. However with the passage of time and more recently with the Coronavirus Pandemic group meetings and bulletins have ceased. The forwarding of relevant information is the responsibility of those who manage Horsewatch groups. Within the Alliance each Horsewatch Group will remain autonomous with this website being a central point for contact details for each individual group and related websites containing relevant information. If you are a member of a Horsewatch Group and would like to be included please contact Thames Valley Horsewatch via ‘contact us’.
This website is designed to provided links to as many groups as we are aware of. The website provides links to information regarding stolen horses, ponies and trailers, security and identification information plus any other relevant information
Most groups work in partnership with their local Police Forces in order to promote security measures with which support the equine community in order to prevent the theft of horses and associated equipment. The success of any Horsewatch Group is the enthusiasm of its members and their commitment to preventing and reducing the risk of becoming the victim of a crime.
