Jack Williams and Nellie Wayne are in love, but her father favors the suit of a rich easterner, Wm. Ford, who is vacationing in the west.

A horse thief gets away with Ford's horse, and as Jack has left a few minutes before, Ford thinks he has taken the animal.

Jack mounts the stolen horse and starts in pursuit, but is left behind. The posse catches up with him and he is accused of being a thief.

The Broncho producers are turning out excellent work
9 April 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very good picture. The Broncho producers are turning out excellent work. The action in their pictures, and they don't lack action, stands out on the screen convincingly, as though it was natural and a fact; it seems spontaneous. It is due in large part to the acting and in this picture we like especially the heroine, a cow girl. It is she, who, after securing the real horse thief, holds up her lover, wrongly accused, and collects the reward offered for him. It is her rough humor; he doesn't understand it until she produces the culprit and he is freed. Money is useful in housekeeping. Every player in it acts acceptably. It pays to employ really competent people in making pictures for the public. - The Moving Picture World, December 21, 1912
