Pony Surfin' - Sheridan WYO Rodeo Style

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. The Indian Relay Races are definitely a crowd draw and pleaser - and a little pony surfing can't hurt the ratings. For many more photos see:

Two Time Champ Luke Rock Starts Slow

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.

Wyoming has some shoddy history when it comes to intercultural relations with Native Americans. Joseph LaForge, whose Crow name is Red Bear, remembers being kicked out of a resteraunt as a young boy because of his heritage. He grew up hearing stories from his grandparents about the subjugation of his family and even the massacre of their horses. While it's a sore spot for both settlers and natives here, Joseph is doing his part to leave the past in the past and bridge the gap between the two cultures.
