A rodeo and horse riding website is accepting items for an auction to raise money for the Southern Arkansas University Rodeo Team Fund.

Riders N Ropers are asking individuals and businesses to donate items to auctioned for the scholarship fund.

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

Riders N Ropers owner, Jeanette Kellar, says so far they've raised $420 in donations to help with the scholarship fund.

Anyone that has an item to donate to be auctioned off should message Kellar at and send in a picture of the item. Cash donations can be made at
