    Exclamation Leone Equestrians equipment trailer missing from Thermal

    From both Leone's Facebook page and their website.

    On Monday morning, March 18, the Leone Equestrians equipment trailer with all their tack trunks, show set-up equipment, and client's belongings left the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal. As of this morning, March 21, it has not arrived in... Sacramento. It is a gray Cargo trailer with the Leone Equestrians name, address and phone number in several places being towed by a 1989 Pace Arrow motor home.

    If anyone sees the trailer,
    please call Rudy at (916) 531-2969 immediately

    Oh boy. That's too bad!

    I'm assuming they haven't heard from whomever was driving it then, too?

    Hope it all works out and everyone is ok.

    I saw this on their FB page too. Seems odd that the person they trusted to tow the trailer made off with it? And from what I read there was not an accident or anything.

    So the equipment trailer left with somebody they knew but never arrived at the destination?

    Sounds very odd and there are some details missing...

    But, years ago a friend was traveling in a motor home and towing a cargo trailer. They stopped to eat somewhere and someone unhitched the trailer from the motor home. They pulled out and didn't notice. When they finally figured out they were missing their trailer and turned around the trailer was long gone.

    I wonder if something like that could have happened?

    Default End of season.....beware....

    This would be a big heist if that is what it is, But I have noticed at the end of the season when everyone is breaking camp a lot of stuff starts disappearing. A time to beware!!!

    I saw a pile of equipment sitting at the end of someone's driveway yesterday in Wellington. I was tempted to stop in and tell them they might want to have someone keep an eye on it after the episodes last year when a few people got their stuff stolen that way. Very bad.

    Yikes! I hope they get their trailer full of stuff back! That's awful! With something that valuable.. can you Lo-Jack it or put a GPS tracker on it just in case?
