Tom Mix's faithful horse Tony portrays a wild stallion in this average Mix western in which the hero saves a girl (Jacqueline Logan) from a stampeding herd of wild horses. The ungrateful wench, however, challenges her savior to tame the leader of the horses (Tony), which he promptly does. The cowboy's rival in love, Slade (Lawford Davidson), later kidnaps the girl, but she is rescued by Mix and the now tame Tony. Leading lady Jacqueline Logan played a very glamorous Mary Magdalene in Cecil B. DeMille's gargantuan The King of Kings (1927) before abandoning her career shortly after the changeover to sound.
