    “They were claiming they needed help for some reason ... and that’s what they used to get the homeowners to actually open the door and come out to them or let them in,” state police Lt. Craig Martin said.

    The couple inside the home, however, had a weapon of their own, and they used it to scare the suspects off, Martin said.

    Later this month, they’ll get to see the results of their work and dedication.

    Their horses will be put up for sale as part of the local Ride to Pride organization’s “Project Hope Colt Sale.”
