Horse Nations Indian Relay "Tour of Champions 2018 Season Opener"

Saturday, May 26, 2018

Indian Relay’s Tour of Champions 2018 Season Opener. Indian Relay is a centuries old form of horse racing that shows the athleticism of both the rider and his horses. Riding bareback the rider makes three laps around the track, each lap on a different horse processing both speed and skill. Exciting "thrills and spills" will have everyone on their feet cheering. Expect lots of action with teams converging from 6 states and Canada competing for prize money, bragging rights and their entry into the year-end Championship of Champions.

Horse Nations Indian Relay “Tour of Champions 2018 Season Opener” will kick off Memorial Day weekend in Gillette, Wyoming. Two days of action packed relay will happen at the CAM-PLEX, May 26th & 27th at 2pm with teams converging from 6 states and Canada to try to earn their entry into the year-end Championship of Champions. Indian Relay is a centuries old form of horse racing that shows the athleticism of both the rider and his horses.  Riding bareback, the rider makes three laps around the track, each lap on a different horse processing both speed and skill.  

"Thrills and spills" will have everyone on their feet cheering for teams as the chaos of having 4-6 teams (12-18 horses) on the track at one time makes it both dangerous and exciting.

Calvin Ghost Bear, president of HNIRC says, “Gillette is the kickoff of a multi-race summer tour that leads to the Championship of Champions September 21-23rd in Kennewick, Washington.  Both places will be new to us this year, but the 2017 champion, Scott Abrahamson, is from Washington and there are many teams from that area.  I think the teams will be excited, the town of Gillette was very welcoming to us, and the well-maintained racetrack made it the perfect place for our season opener.”
