Many horse insurance customers may like to commemorate their four-legged friends by collecting equine memorabilia.
However, it appears that one such fan has had an unlucky break, if a report from the BBC is anything to go by.
The news source claims that a home in Cumbria has been broken into, with antiques worth a total of £10,000 stolen.
These include a Heredities bronze horse, mare, foal and shepherd, which is likely to be devastating to the owner, who may haved placed high sentimental value upon the items, particularly if he or she owns their own equine.
In addition, a Carlton Ware tea service and side plates, Beswick Birds and eight Royal Doulton ladies ornaments were also taken.
Although horse insurance will not protect against break-ins, the unpredictability of such an event may underline the importance of riders taking out such a policy to protect both their mounts and themselves.
