Like most of the horse owners in the United States, Nate Priefert never thought it could happen to him. His roping horse disappeared during the Chuckwagon Races in Clinton, Arkansas. Like many victims across the nation he has turned to Stolen Horse International, or netposse.com, for help.
It is believed that Chief was stolen around midnight on Friday, September 3rd from the Van Buren County event. Chief is a 9-year-old, 1100-pound American Quarter Horse Association sorrel gelding and a professionally trained roping horse. He is 14.2 hands and his markings include a wide blaze which wraps across his nose, two white back stockings, and a square diamond brand with a capital “P” inside on his left hip. Chief also has a 3-inch scar on his left hip, which may appear swollen. Tack that was stolen with the horse includes a trophy western saddle and bridle, a breast collar, and a rifle scabbard on the right side of the saddle.
Chief is owned by Nate Priefert, Executive Vice President of Priefert Manufacturing Company. Priefert is offering a $1000 reward for the safe return of his horse. Please forward this flyer and link.
