Shoshone-Bannock Tribes  

About

It has proven to be one of the biggest attractions of the Shoshone-Bannock Festival and can only be accurately portrayed by witnessing it live and in person.

The Indian Relays will be held on August 10th @ 10 am & August 11th, 12th, and 13th at 5:00 pm each day at the Fort hall Rodeo/Relay Grounds (Simplot Road).


The Indian Relay races have long since been a part of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes culture. The sport actually originated here on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation over a hundred years ago. Many families that participated in the sport decades ago are still participating and passing this legacy on from generation to generation.

The Indian Relay teams consist of three horses and four team members (1 rider, 1 catcher (Mugger), and 2 holders). The rider must complete a lap with each horse riding bareback. The rider must dismount without any help from their team mates and without losing control of their horses.
