Wild Horse Race at Navajo Nation Fair

To add to the testament of classic nostalgia, 24 Native American teams consisting of three wild bronc riding individuals will display their horse riding magic as they try to race their wild horses to the finish line on September 7-9th.

Wild Horse Race at Navajo Nation Fair

The wild horse event will be held in conjunction with an Open Indian Rodeo that will be held on September 7-9th.

Rodeo fans will see a razor sharp showdown of champion Native American cowboys and chic cowgirls from throughout the U.S. and Canada who will compete for thousands of dollars in prize money.

It is said that Indian rodeo is the most popular sport on the Navajo Nation…just come on out and you’ll see why. In fact, it just doesn’t get any more rustic and original than Indian rodeo here on the Navajo Nation….this is your chance to see relics of the old west come alive.
