Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
As reward for saving a girl (Lotus Thompson) from quicksand, Fred Humes gets a job on her ranch. One problem, though: he is afraid of horses due to some childhood trauma. Because of that unwelcome phobia, Humes had been fired by haughty rancher Claude Payton. Payton owns the water rights in the valley and is trying to force Thompson's father (Buck Connors) off his land. Motivated by revenge and a newfound love for the girl he saved, Humes conquers his fears and wins the Big Race to save the day.
