This is from an ongoing self-funded project on the Native American Indian Relay Riders.Teams from the reservations race around a track bareback and after once round they leap from the horse and run to another called the exchange.Its a dangerous sport but one steeped in Native Culture and history.This was taken just before the races showing a young Native Rider getting into the Zone for the race.
