Experience North America's original extreme sport in Walla Walla!

$249+ / Per Person, Double Occupancy

An exhilarating mix of high-speed daring and exquisite horsemanship, Indian relay is a sport widely enjoyed and practiced by men and women from tribal nations across the Rocky Mountain West.

Three horses, one rider, one mugger and two holders. Each race begins with athletes riding bareback around a track at full gallop. After one lap, barely slowing down, the riders leap from their speeding horses to the second set of horses. Each team’s handlers must then catch the first horse or risk being disqualified, creating a chaotic melee of 32 people and 24 racehorses in the middle of the track. After another top-speed lap and another daring horse change, the teams race for the finish line at speeds topping 40 miles an hour.

While they are rivals on the track, the young relay racers share a deep bond through their love of the sport and pride in their Native traditions.

And while in Walla Walla, take time to unwind with the abundance of wine produced in the valley.
