Sixteen year old Robin Marshall heads West for what she anticipates will be a glorious summer at her cousins' riding academy. What greets her on arrival is a rundown ranch with competition from a more modern one nearby, broken fences and neglected horses. Despite the cool attitude of her cousin Butch, and Cora's proud facade, Robin girds herself for a hectic job of rehabilitation for which she receives food, board and a small salary. She institutes a riding school for children and embarks on a unique publicity campaign which in the end results in a rejuvenated riding academy and a personal romance with Guy Kennedy. When she is about to leave for home, an unexpected situation arises to which Robin rallies. Girls enamored of horses will understand Robin's love of them and will appreciate her abilities as a horsewoman, despite the predictable character of the overall plot.
