Bud Rand, a cowboy who is charged with the care of Little Billy Rand, accepts an offer to appear with Copeland's Wild West Show to ride a horse called "Mankiller." Dude, Copeland's righthand man, resents Bud's attentions to Mary, one of the performers, and when they fight it out, Bud is the victor. In revenge Dude loosens the cinch on the horse, causing Bud to be trampled. Bud is forced to stay behind when the show moves on; Dude intercepts letters from Bud and tells Mary and Billy that he is a coward. When Billy is taken ill, Bud goes to see him and is told of the situation; he rides Mankiller and breaks him, regaining the boy's confidence and Mary's love, while the culprits are routed.
