Suzi was very helpful with the clothing section of my Rookie Reiner book. Please see her message below:

Thieves made off with approximately $250,000 worth of chaps and show tops. More than 300 pairs of our popular PMS split leather chaps were stolen; they had been delivered from our customs broker less than 12
hours earlier. No attempt was made to enter our offices; no computers or electronic equipment in the warehouse was taken. The thieves appeared to only be after our chaps and more expensive garments.

My employees and my company are jeopardized by this robbery; we lost inventory, including Limited Edition garments that cannot be replaced, that would provide the cash flow to continue our business operations. We
will survive, but this is a serious setback.

I am asking for the help of horse community members in advising me if they come across ANY strange offers on Hobby Horse apparel. We have not yet completed an inventory of stolen items but will shortly. We will
post a notice on our website at http://www.hobbyhorseinc regarding items that were stolen. A reward will be offered for information in this case.

PLEASE contact me if you suspect someone is sellling our stolen inventory. We will immediately contact our local police for their follow-up. Most thieves are never caught, but Hobby Horse chaps and show apparel is such distinctive apparel to try to fence, we may have a chance of possibly recovering some of our inventory.

I also ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this disruption; we appreciate your business more than ever in this tough time. We’ll do our best to fulfill your orders; we know you count on us!

Thank you, and please share this message with others in the horsecommunity.

I’ve met Renee and I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of so many people close to her.

We’ve gone through some trying times here recently, I’m reminded that family and friends are very important. Hug them while you can. Love them even when you don’t like them. Be brave and get off Facebook and get face to face!
