Indian Relay Races.
What is the Native American horse relay race?
Indian Relay Racing is a way for teams to compete for cash and prizes. Teams consist of one rider, three horses, two holders and a mugger. The race starts in front of the grandstands, with a standing start. Racers make one lap around the track, changing horses twice in front of the grandstands.

Horse Nations Indian Relay.
The Horse Nations Indian Relay Council is bringing together the Horse Nations of the Plains in a team event of speed, courage, and skill.
Leading riders and teams from seven different Nations covering ID, MT, ND, SD, WA, OR, AZ, WY and Canada display their skills and daring as they battle it out on the race track. Five determined teams consisting of three horses, one rider, one mugger and two holders, enter the track, each taking their designated box to start the race. Months of practicing breeds confidence that they will bring home the honors. Fifteen horses are primed for the start of the race, ready to leap into the action and glory of the race. The holders and mugger ready, risking personal injury to themselves, as the horses come in for their exchanges.
“The heart pounding, the hooves, the adrenalin, the crowd, the excitement- you aren’t going to get that anywhere else.”
Calvin Ghost Bear”.
Add to this the unsuccessful transfers-riders sprawled face down in the dirt of the track, or a rider clinging to the side of his horse in a struggle to stay aboard- and it’s easy to see why Indian relay is helping to fill the stands across the West.”
