Ryan Miller is a determined 16-year-old from a small town called Baladin. His parents didn't like the idea of him wanting to learn the art of becoming a rodeo clown.
When he gets a job on the property of the local rodeo proprietor, Tom Jillings, he learns how to ride a horse, in precarious ways at times! Faced with a bull stampede, he has to figure things out very quickly, and it brings him to a life-changing decision.
Ryan adapts to rodeo life in his typical gangly manner and learns many lessons about growing up along the way from his mentor-turned-friend, Bill Sinclair.
Then he meets Angela, and together with Bill's help, they train an unruly mare for the competitive sport of barrel racing.
Ryan, unexpectedly, gets his chance as a rodeo clown.
