    A picture that pleased many in the audience. It features a very well trained and sure-footed horse. The story is artificial and plainly was fabricated to permit a showing of this horse's capabilities. It was not acted very naturally. The horse, smelling out a trail, follows his mistress, who has been captured by drunken Indians, and when he finds her frees her from binding cords with his teeth. She mounts and, riding away to safety, meets her lover who. with a sheriff and posse, is coming to the rescue. The reason as it was shown for her getting into the predicament was not at all convincing. Yet, as we have pointed out, many seemed to like the picture. When some began to applaud there were a few who seemed inclined to make fun of them for it. - The Moving Picture World, September 14, 1912
