Mitch travels from rodeo to rodeo (from Texas to California) competing for the county championships that will ultimately lead to the prized Gold Buckle, the trophy that is awarded to the world’s best bronco buster.

As (bad) luck would have it, the NBC series The Wide Country found itself up against Stoney Burke – an ABC show also about a rodeo rider, featuring Jack Lord.
