British actress Jenny Seagrove has been left heartbroken after thugs broke into her horse sanctuary and stole expensive equipment. The A Chorus of Disapproval star has set up Mane Chance in Surrey, England, which aims to rehome abused or abandoned horses.
The official opening took place on Sunday (25Aug13), but it was marred by a break-in on Saturday (24Aug13), when the sanctuary was ransacked.
Seagrove tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I am devastated. The thieves took away our brand-new £6,000 quad bike plus £2,000-worth of farm equipment.
"I know people steal things, but we are such a small, young charity and everything is still such a struggle. Having all our equipment taken is a real kick in the guts. Of course, we have insurance, but we desperately need to replace our equipment now."

An attractive British performer of stage, screen and TV, Seagrove made her film debut in a small part in Jerzy Skolimowski's "Moonlighting" (1982). The large-eyed blonde actress first gained attention, however, for her turn as Peter Riegert's love interest in Bill Forsyth's whimsical comedy, "Local Hero" (1983). Seagrove has subsequently appeared in several films by Michael Winner, including "Appointment with Death" (1988) and "A Chorus of Disapproval" (1989), and was suitably eerie as the mysterious nanny in William Friedkin's "The Guardian" (1990).
Born in Kuala Lampur to British parents, Seagrove trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in London. She has appeared on the British stage in "Bedroom Farce" (1979) and the title roles of "Hedda Gabler" (1983) and "Jane Eyre" (1986). On the small screen, Seagrove first caught the attention of US audiences as the younger version of Deborah Kerr's character in the syndicated miniseries "A Woman of Substance" (1984).
