ORIGINAL ARTICLE: On Nov. 2, five horses were stolen out of their stalls at Southern Arkansas University’s Mulerider Stables along with a trailer and some tack. The horses were used by SAU’s rodeo team.

Officials confirmed that four of the five missing horses had been recovered on Nov. 15. The horses were found in a wooded area near Tom, Okla. where the stolen trailer had been found on Nov. 3. The horses appeared malnourished and dehydrated, but are expected to recover.

Some of the stolen tack and equipment was recovered on Nov. 10.

Police investigating the case have confirmed that they do have suspects, according to SAU, but they are not releasing the names as the investigation is still ongoing.

The fifth horse is a 15-year-old Sorrel American Quarter Horse gelding named Credit Card. He is 15 hands with a blaze, left rear sock and freeze brands on his left shoulder and right hip. He is described as high-strung and poor mannered. SAU is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of the horse.

I'm glad that they found the 4 at least. But why were they stolen?
