Priefert Quarter Horse Reported Stolen at Arkansas Chuckwagon Race--Like most of the horse owners in the United States Nate Priefert never thought “it” could happen to him.

Chief is owned by Mr. Nate Priefert, Executive Vice President of Priefert Manufacturing Company. The company is a leading US manufacturer of rodeo and ranch equipment based in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Mr. Priefert is offering a $1000 reward for the safe return of his horse. Read more here
