Rough and tumble cowgirl Cody and her persnickety mule, Sprezzatura, ride into town fixin' to win the annual rodeo. Only one problem: girls aren't allowed to compete. Unwilling to lay down the lasso so easily, Cody and Sprezzatura whip up the perfect plan to disguise themselves as a boy and a horse and sneak their way into the competitors' ring. Western-y and Shakespearean-y shenanigans ensue when a dastardly villain, a slew of singing horses, and an unexpected romance come between Cody and her master plan to win the day in this rootin-tootin' comedy.
