Mickey, Donald, and Goofy enter a rodeo, with Donald pretending to be their horse, to get money to fix their car.


  • Bittersweet Ending: Even though the rodeo couldn't afford to give Mickey, Donald, and Goofy their prize money, a millionaire gives Mickey and Goofy more than enough money to repair their car in exchange for Donald, who he believed was a real horse. However, this also makes the ending more bitter than sweet because Donald abandons his friends in exchange for being pampered by the millionaire and Mickey and Goofy decide to not tell Daisy about this.
