UPDATE ON DEC. 21: The Wyoming couple stranded here since the rodeo has recovered some of their stolen products.  

"That's probably one-eighth of the horse product," says Jodi Rose. "But I'm just glad we were able to recover this much." 

Somebody reached out to Rose, saying she thought she had some of her stuff. Turns out, some of the stolen horse products had been dumped in the dirt lot right behind the Henderson Saddle Association.  

"It was like they did it on purpose," says Pam McNaughton with the Henderson Saddle Association.  "It was just really weird why they would dump it so close to us." 

Rose's truck and trailer are still missing.  


A Wyoming couple has been stranded in Las Vegas since the National Finals Rodeo, after they say, somebody stole their trailer filled with horse supplies.  

The rodeo brings in several related events, including country concerts, Cowboy Christmas, and a country-western marketplace.  Jodi Rose and her husband traveled nearly 800 miles to be here for that week.  They have a small family owned business called Gary's Equine Essentials, a lot of what they sell is high-end grooming products for show horses.  

Rose says the rodeo is one of their biggest sellers, and they had about $300,000 worth of merchandise inside the trailer when it was stolen from a parking lot near The Grandviews.
