Little did Poco and his friends, Lance and Willie, think when they read the sticker that they would soon be up against horse stealing and planned robberies of the takings.

But that was not all. There was also Gloria Pearl, the beautiful girl who rode bareback on a white horse; well - Poco just couldn't take his eyes off her . . .
