Because of his knowledge of horse flesh, Bond decides Ericson's the guy to make the deal and go to the nearest town to acquire equines. Reluctantly he sends Talbot along with them. But when these two along the way meet up with a band of horse thieves, things get very interesting in the story.
Another part of the story is the Wagon Train stuck in a dry wash with the threat of incipient rains and a flood without any horses to pull them out. Some nicely done sequences showing the men of the train pulling the wagons to higher ground.
Not a bad episode of the series.
