Thirty Indian Relay teams, representing over 12 Indian nations gathered at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds over the weekend for the All Nations Indian Relay Championships.

It was history in the making with the largest number of first-rate teams ever assembled offering some of the best horse racing competition ever seen for the thousands of spectators filling the fairground's stands.

Definitely a team sport, each team consists of three horses, two holders, one mugger and the rider lapping the course three times.

Jostin Lawrence is the mugger for his team and explains.

Calvin Ghostbear's team made it to the finals, something he says takes a lot of preparation.

Both horse and rider are topnotch athletes and he says that's how they're treated.

But Ghostbear adds there's a couple of extra ingredients needed to win.

Teams competed for a purse of $50,000.
