I live in Oklahoma and had 10 horses stollen from me. I didn't know where to go,who to talk to, or even where to start. We had posted it on Facebook but I didn't know what else to do.
Then I got a phone call from Debi Bailey Metcalfe. I was a wreck and she walked me through everything. Debi and a volunteer, Jana Bailey, have been there by my side step by step. They walked me through what to do on the recovery of the only horse we have gotten back so fare. They help my weed through every lead we get. They have helped me through all the hard times, and believe me there are a lot. They help me not give up hope on finding the other 9 of my horses. There is NO way I could do this alone. Stolen Horse International has so many resources that I wouldn't ever have had.
I want to thank Stolen Horse international for everything they do. I recommend them to any body that has had a horse stolen or is missing. They are just amazing people!

While I have fortunately never had to use Stolen Horse International, Inc., the work that they do and the commitment to the cause at hand is unwavering. They help so many people who have had their horse stolen or simply get loose and disappear, and they do with passion not only for the horse but the owner as well. The private eye's in the equine world! I cannot sing enough praise about this organization!

This group was fabulous when my horse was missing. They kept in contact with me, helped keep me sane., produced flyers and social media posts and stayed with me until he was found! I would recommend Stolen Horse international to anyone that has a missing horse.

I found Stolen Horse International in 2009 when my mare, Sunshine, was stolen from her pasture by roofers. I never found my horse but had many people contact me regarding her because of Stolen Horse's website. Recently, a volunteer for Stolen Horse International contacted me and said they were going to have another look at what happened to Sunshine. A totally volunteer organization that never forgets and gives hope to those of us who have lost something precious. I can not thank them enough!

I had 10 horses stolen and had no clue on how to go about trying to get them back. I received a phone call from stolen horse international. They walked me through everything. They have worked and are still working really hard to help me get them back. They have been there every minute of the way. Through the ups and downs. I couldn't have done it without Stolen Horse International!!

Anytime anyone mentions a horse has been stolen or lost, the first recommendation I give is to contact Netposse.com/Stolen Horse international Inc. This organization truly works hard to recover lost/stolen horses worldwide. As a volunteer I was able to personally get to know and spend quality time with the founders and you could not find anymore dedicated individuals to ensuring a beloved part of a family is returned safe and sound. They are well organized, well informed, extremely knowledgable and totally committed and dedicated to this organization. Any assistance they are able to receive benefits all horse owners worldwide.

Stolen Horse International helps recover a lot of horses! I have faith in then-- so much so that I had my beloved mustang, Annie, microchipped. I have ID tags for all my horses and donkeys. They do great work! I hope I never need them, but if I do, I know they will be there.
