Tufts equeditors are worried that thieves may have stolen their horses, but the university says that’s not the case.
“In general, there’s no indication that thieves have taken horses at Tufts or anywhere else,” said Dr. Thomas Hausler, president of the equestries union.
The thieves would have had to have been outside of the arena, had they taken horses from outside the arena and into the stands.
“The equestria do not have fencing,” Hauslinger said.
“We don’t have fencing around the arena itself.”
Tufts is hosting a training session to teach its students how to protect their horses in the arena.
“What we’re doing is just teaching people what to do when they are outside the stadium,” said Hauslers’ son, Mark Hausinger.
“If they have a horse outside, we have a fencing around it.”
The university has installed fencing to protect the equids in the main arena.
The fencing includes a small barrier and a large one that can be pulled back to block any intruders.
The equids will be returned to the arena on Sunday.
