ELLENWOOD, Ga. (AP) -- A family has been reunited with their rodeo horses that were stolen before a competition.

WSB-TV reports the horses and trailer were stolen from a Walmart in Henry County on Friday, and were found at another Walmart on Sunday in Ellenwood. A Henry County veterinarian checked out the horses, and the family says they are in good condition.

The Roark family of Chattanooga, Tennessee, was traveling with their two horses to Perry, Georgia, for a weekend competition. Twelve-year-old Bree Roark was able to compete on a friend's horse.

Police are reviewing parking lot surveillance video for clues about who took the horses.
