The arrival of a new rider creates a furor at a rodeo in this average Tom Keene Western from RKO. Joining Fred Burns' training camp, Keene not only causes trouble between the veteran riders but also gets on the wrong side of the owner's daughter (Helen Foster) when he naively dallies with coquettish rodeo girl Marie Quillan. On a dare, Keene agrees to ride Wild Fury, a horse that earlier injured one of Burns' best men and is badly hurt. But as Calgary (Harry Bowen) learns, Keene's gear has been sabotaged by the nasty Robert Frazer, the rodeo's resident star and Quillan's fiancé. Recovered in record time, the boy gets back in the saddle only to discover that he has lost his nerve. He leaves the ranch to seek solace in the wilderness, but an encounter with a wild stallion brings him renewed courage. Returning to the outfit, Keene learns that his erstwhile nemesis is now a cripple after yet another encounter with Wild Fury. Does the rejuvenated Keene conquer his fears and ride Wild Fury to victory? And does he fall in love with the rodeo owner's blond daughter? Why, of course he does!
