I have known Debi Metcalf for approximately 14 years. I first met her through her organization, Stolen Horse International/Net Posse, when I was working Agriculture/Livestock Crimes with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Knoxville, Tennessee. It was through her assistance I was able to recover numerous horses that had been stolen and was able to make arrests which resulted in convictions. Through the years she has developed a massive network dealing mainly with stolen horses and horse related items. She has developed an excellent reporting system and works very closely with the victims in getting the information out as well as the local law enforcement agency. People may think that as this is the 21st Century and not the 19th Century, but horse theft is a very profitable affair for those that think they can get away with it. A horse can be taken out of your pasture or barn, loaded in a trailer, and within 8 to 12 hours can be several states away and sold at an auction barn for either personal use or to a slaughter house. It is through Debi’s and her volunteer staffs hard work this type of crime is abated by getting the information about the horse out for all to see. Some might have the mindset that it is just a horse, but to those that own horses, they are family to them just as your dog might be to you. Like all crimes, some are never solved, but Stolen Horse International through Debi’s hard work has a resounding record of recovery. I would encourage everyone to help support her organization and her efforts.

My wife Sandy and I had met Debi Metcalfe many years ago within the equestrian world. We learned her story about a horse that meant so much to her, that was her life besides her love for her family, that this horse was taken from her right out of her pasture. She had no where to turn and her pain and feeling hopelessness sparked a driven passion to do something about it. Sandy and I watched Debi relentlessly transform an idea to do something to help others into a real major organization with Stolen Horse International Inc. A network were people can turn to for real help. A place that gives people who have been victimized with their horses or equipment hope, answers and results. God bless Debi Metcalfe for creating this and helping so many people with her special organization, Stolen Horse International Inc. - WOODEN HORSE CORPORATION

I've been closely acquainted with Debi Metcalfe and her mission, Stolen Horse International and, for several years. I believe Debi has a unique call to this work, and her efforts have been invaluable in preventing animal theft, as well as reuniting stolen horses with their rightful owners. This was a difficult field to enter, on several fronts, and Debi donates countless hours (and a considerable amount of cash) to educating horse owners about horse theft, and providing practical means to prevent it. I applaud Debi's perseverance, and wish her continued success on the journey.

I can't think of anything more awful than to come home and my horses be gone! This happened to one of my friends last year. Fortunately, we were able to get some really good and fast advice from Debi Metcalfe at Thanks to her suggestions we were able to get fliers out, use social media and the local authorities. The person who stole the horse didn't get caught, but they did leave it to be discovered nearby. It was such a relief to know that somebody out there was helping us get through this nightmare! Debi's work is amazing and her long and tireless dedication is unmatched! It is without reservation that I can recommend her services through this wonderful organization.

Debi Metcalfe and Stolen Horse International are the gold standard when you encounter a situation involving a missing or stolen horse, whether you found the horse or lost the horse. The thoughtful care and personal attention Debi gives every case is inspiring because she has personal experience with h ow it feels to have your horse taken. As an equine attorney in North Carolina and director on the NC Horse Council board I am often asked about situations where there is a horse missing (or found) and a referral to Debi is virtually always in order. The results SHI regularly produces are amazing!

I whole-heartedly endorse Stolen Horse International, Inc in their efforts to aid individuals who have been victimized by the theft of their horses or property. The folks at SHI have worked hard to establish an international network that offers these victims real hope. SHI also provides educational opportunities to improve public awareness through seminars, presentations and exhibits and works closely with the law enforcement community to help recover stolen property. I look forward to working with Debi Metcalfe and her staff to find other ways in which Randy Abernathy Horsemanship can help to support this worthwhile organization.
