THIEVES stole a horse after tricking the victim into thinking they were trainers.
The two men went to a farm off Wakefield Road in Grange Moor to look at a puppy for sale.
During the conversation the victim said his daughter had a horse which needed taming. The men said they could train the horse.
They returned with a wooden horse trailer with blue doors, loaded the horse up and drove off. They never came back or called.
The theft took place at about 2pm last Wednesday. The predominantly white piebald cob horse is 16.3 hands high and is valued at £2,000.
Both thieves were white and spoke with strong Irish accents. One was 30 to 40 and 5ft 7in tall with light, mousy hair.
The other was thin, with black hair and a moustache.
