KAEEN TIGER, SAYING:

“Just as long as everybody is out there having fun and being safe, that's the only thing that everybody really cares about -- what I care about anyways. Winning comes after you, usually after you be humble and all that.”

It’s a sport primarily practiced by Native Americans in the northern plains

One rider completes three circles of a track

They leap off the first horse onto another one

and take off toward the finish line
