No Water - No Problem, you can always "Pony Surf" as jockey Colby Rockroads of Team Roundstone from Busby, Montana appeared to be doing in heat four of Wednesday evening's World Championship Indian Relay Race.

Two time World Champion Indian Relay Race jockey Luke Rock of the Rock Relay Team from Lodge Grass, Montana had a rough go in the Wednesday night 3rd Heat finishing in third place. Luke had a poor start and a trouble filled start of the last leg to cast doubt of a three-peat champion run. Luke was first in both 2010 and 2011.
