Catching wild horses is forbidden in this part of the country, but that doesn't keep crooked landowner Rance McGowan (J.P.McGowan) from wanting to capture & sell them for good money, but the sheriff (Ed Cassidy) & the Mesquiteers (Bob Livingston as Stoney, Crash Corrigan as Tucson, Max Terhune as Lullaby) continuously spoil his plans.

So Rance comes up with a devillish plan, he paints one of his horses, Volcano, like a very distinctive & prominent pinto wild horse, & has Volcano, & a horde of his other horses, destroy the crops of the local farmers at night.

Soon enough the local farmers urge the sheriff & the Mesquiteers to go investigating, & indeed, that same night, they find the fake pinto, who promptly kills the sheriff ... & things couldn't look better for Rance McGowan, as soon the locals are willing to sign a petition to revoke the government's protection of wild horses.

The next day, the Mesquiteers go out to hunt down the (real) pinto, capture him too & bring him back to town, where Tucson - the newly appointed sheriff - has to defend him against an angry lynch mob & promise him - the horse - a fair trial.

Meanwhile, Stoney has fallen for lovely saloon singer Rita (Rita Cansino a.k.a. Hayworth), who before long arranges a wedding between them both - much to the dismay of Tucson & Lullaby, but their efforts to dissuade him avail to nought. So they paint her, the urbane actress, a rather backwood bicture of her husband to be, until she decides not only not to marry him but also to skip town in a hurry.

Stoney is devastated & - out of frustration - frees the pinto, whom he never believed guilty - & rides off with him, soon followed by a large posse.

He finds refuge, of all places, at Rance McGowan's farm ... where he soon spots Volcano, & before long sees through Rance's game. Fortunately his fellow Mesquiteers have followed Stoney'S trail, & after one of these shoot-outs the baddies are brought to justice & good prevails.

 

A rather silly plot (or actually two rather silly plots, the one about the horses, the other about Stoney getting married) cannot really destroy this film, a good-natured piece of B-Western with lots of chases, shoot-outs, a better than usual leading lady (Rita Hayworth early in her career), some nice shots of wild horses (though the most impressive sequence, the pinto fighting a black stallion, was actually lifted from the 1926 film The Devil Horse), & a bit of light comedy thrown in for good measure.

Of course, all of this doesn't make it a classic, or outstanding of its genre, but a good less-than-an-hour of entertainment.
