Horse show security (fictional)
Ok, it's been a while since I've been on the show circuit (I'm not gonna admit how long!). Back when I was showing, we'd leave our horses in the temporary stables without worry - sometimes someone would sleep in the tackroom (heck, I've even slept in a stall), but it wasn't out of fear that something would get stolen.
I know things have changed, but could you tell me how much? Do most of the big shows have overnight security? I'm planning to have a horse disappear out of the stabling at Eastwood Equine (in Quebec). I'm going to check with them first, and if they mind I'll make up a fictitious barn, but I'd like to know how likely my scenario is. It's for the 3rd book in my 'Blaze of Glory' series, so it's a fictional situation, obviously :)
