Jon Marc Skunkcap jumps from one horse to the next while his teammate steadies the animal during an Indian relay race in Fort Hall, Idaho on July 3. Indian relay has been described as America's first extreme sport by promoters.

It’s called America’s first extreme sport. It’s certainly old … and extreme. Mountain West News Bureau reporter Nate Hegyi takes us to the Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho, where Shoshone Bannock tribal members are gearing up for Indian Relay.
