The Camas Prairie Stump Race is one of five competition game events approved for speciality shows by the Appaloosa Horse Club. The race was inspired by the games played by the Nez Perce Native American tribe. The Stump Race is a barrel race but differs from other barrel races in that two horses race against each other on identical circuits opposite the start-finish line. The riders start beside each other going opposite directions and the first horse and rider back across the line wins the race. The races continue until all but the last is eliminated.
