A horse named Valor missing from a Calgary farm has been found in Nova Scotia.

There was no horsing around in the search for a stolen American sport horse.

“The horse has been located,” wrote Talia Wrightson, TC Sport Horses owner, in a text Tuesday morning.

“I would like everyone to know Valor has been located in Nova Scotia,” read an update on the original Facebook post. “At this time we won’t be releasing any further information, but I want everyone to know he is safe.”

On Sunday night, the TC Sport Horses owner posted Valor had been stolen from a Calgary farm and was believed to be in Nova Scotia.

The 16.2-hands high chestnut American sport horse was staying at a stable in Priddis, Alta., when he was taken in the last week of January.

Valor was sold in November on a payment plan, but the woman allegedly stopped making payments and removed him from the Alberta facility.

A theft complaint was filed on Jan. 31 with the Alberta RCMP, but Nova Scotia RCMP hasn’t received a request for assistance, said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke on Tuesday.

Wrightson wouldn’t elaborate on how Valor was located, but said she hadn’t been contacted by RCMP or the woman who bought the horse.

“I don’t really know much right now,” said Wrightson.

The original post had been shared more than 12,500 times by Tuesday afternoon.

“I can’t even begin to express my gratitude towards every single person who has shared, messaged and clicked on our posts in the efforts to find Valor SR,” Wrightson posted on her business’s Facebook page Monday night.

“I feel so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful equine community.”
