MAGNOLIA, AR (KSLA) -

A rodeo and horse riding website has started a reward fund in hopes of finding out who stole five horses from Southern Arkansas University.

Riders N Roper says so far they've already gotten $355 in donations to help with the reward fund. Donations to the fund can be made to the website www.ridersnropers.com. If no one comes forward the money will be given to the SAU Rodeo Team's Scholarship Fund.

The five horses were stolen back on November 2 from the SAU campus. A stolen horse trailer was found the next day in Oklahoma, while saddles, blankets and tack were found on November 10. Four of the horses were recovered a few days later. The fifth horse, named Credit Card, was found dead on November 25.

So far no arrests have been made in the theft.
