Indian Relays | Browning, Montana

Riders switch mounts three times in this fierce, bareback race. Many of these athletic teams – rider, handlers, and horses – are family affairs going back centuries. To be a relay jockey is among the highest honors on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

Best Places to Go

Watch the relays over two days as part of the gritty, colorful North American Indian Days Powwow and Rodeo in Browning the second weekend of July. 

What You Should Know Before You Go
