Slim and Nancy fall in love and the rodeo is beginning to prosper under her guidance. A thoughtless remark by her to Barbecue Jones (Wallace Ford), a one-time champion, now an old man, forces him to prove his fitness as a rider, with the result of being badly injured. All of the performers, including Slim, refuse to be associated with Nancy and the rodeo breaks up. Barbecue recovers and tells the hands that Nancy paid for his hospital bills with monies accumulated for her father's feed bill. The crew is rounded up and Nancy is once again prevailed upon to return as manager.
