Dear ODS Members,
In regards to the horse reported stolen on Sunday, our office has received several reports the horse is safe. We have verified with the Lane County Sherriff’s office that the criminal case has been closed by their office.
We appreciate everyone’s kindness and concern.
This stolen horse alert came out today on the Oregon Dressage Society website. The horse was taken from a barn in Eugene, Oregon, about three hours south of Portland.
At 7:30am, my horse, Woric, was stolen from the farm where he was boarded. A gold pick-up pulling a white slant-load 3-horse trailer pulled up. The grey-haired driver and his tall, young, dark-haired female companion loaded my horse up and drove away.
Woric - affectionately known as Wromeo - is a 6yr. old, 16 hand, black Hanoverian gelding registered with the American Hanoverian Society. He has a white short strip on his face and 4 short white socks. He is sweet, affectionate and gentle. For those of you who saw us at the DevonWood and Lake Oswego shows, you know that we were a very good team.
If you have seen this horse, or have any information as to his whereabouts, please contact Biagina Lazaroni, 541-915-4521. If you were hired to haul the horse, please be advised that you have been - perhaps unknowingly - involved in a crime. If you see this horse offered for sale, it is being done so illegally.
The ODS Office has agreed to post updates on the ODS Website’s news page as they become available.
