In this film, riders meet in Umatilla to prepare for the ride. Horses and riders are examined by vets and judges at the Sewell Ranch. Mrs. Lucille Kenyan, Florida's "Riding Grandma" and two-time champion, participates. The four-day event is judged on horse care, appearance of horse and rider, stalls, equipment and time on the trail. Judging stops are made all along the course. Many breeds of horses participate. Trophies are given to the winners at the end of the event.
