WYO Rodeo

Riders compete in the World Champion Indian Relay race during the Sheridan WYO Rodeo in 2009.

GILLETTE (AP) — A traditional Native American horse race in Gillette has been postponed following cold and wet conditions in northeast Wyoming.

The Gillette News Record reports the Horse Nations Indian Relay was planned for Saturday and Sunday, but rough track conditions have forced organizers to reschedule the event for Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

The sport involves racers riding without saddles to make three laps around a track. Riders finish each lap on a different horse, so they jump on to a new horse twice during each race.
