Derbyshire Horse Watch was set up to help prevent, and detect equine related crime by connecting owners and riders so that information can be communicated quickly. Derbyshire Horse Watch is part of the national Horse Watch Alliance, and we work in partnership with Derbyshire Police.
The success of any Horse Watch scheme revolves around its members. Our commitment to working together to protect horses and property is the base on which to build the measures that help to reduce our risk of having crimes committed against us.
