In Mackenna's gold, there's a scene where Mackenna is held captive by Colorado and where Mackenna meets Hesh-Ke again after a long time.

At the start of the scene, we see Colorado dragging Inga out of a room and throwing her on the ground. Nothing else is indicated and Inga seems emotionally fine afterward.

This made me wonder...Is there anything in the movie that indicates that Colorado and Inga were in relationship prior to that scene? Did he rape her? If yes, then why is she shown as emotionally stable after the incident?

Did he rape her?

That's certainly the implication...certainly abused in some way.

If yes, then why is she shown as emotionally stable after the incident?

I completely disagree...she's clearly traumatised after she's thrown to the ground, staring off into space and not saying anything and is pretty unresponsive.

This continues in the "cell" that she and Mackenna are put overnight until she starts to respond to his care.

Eventually she starts to act more normally but by that time she is also under the influence of "gold fever".

Is there anything in the movie that indicates that Colorado and Inga were in relationship prior to that scene?

None whatsoever.

In fact, it's pretty clear that had never met since she is the daughter of the judge who put a price on Colorado's head...and he doesn't know that.

Colorado also states that he'd never met the judge.

Colorado: You know it's funny. I never lay eyes on Judge Bergerman.

In fact, Colorado's men had killed the judge when he kidnapped Inga and thought that she was his wife.
