Indian Relay Racing Schedule for 2018 Features Events from Montana to South Dakota

Pine Ridge, SD. – The 2018 Season of Indian Relay Racing is in full swing across the country according to the Horse Nations Indian Relay Council (HNIRC). The Schedule of Events is listed on their website with those designated as HNIRC-qualifying are marked in yellow.

The Cloud Peak Energy Tour of Champions kicked off the season in Gillette, WY over Memorial Day week-end with 22 teams participating. This first-time event for Gillette was a great success for teams, hosts and fans.

Indian Relay has developed into the most exciting and explosive sporting competition between the Indian Nations of the Northern Plains. Teams compete with each other throughout the summer months to earn a place at the Championships held in September each year.

Indian Relay is popular with fans of rodeo and other equestrian events. It’s been called “organized chaos” as bareback riders must complete three trips around the rodeo arena track, changing horses each time. Colorful costumes, painted designs on both horse and rider make for an exciting spectacle. Please support the Horse Nations Indian Relay Council by attending Indian Relay Races in a community close to you this summer.

Horse Nations Indian Relay Council (HNIRC) is made up of all Native American members of the Horse Nations. The goal of HNIRC is to support and promote the traditional lifestyle of Native people through Indian Relay Racing.
