NILE Equis Raffle Horse

NILE Raffle Filly Program

Each year the NILE sells tickets all year long for a chance to win a top-notch horse donated by a established ranch. These horses are some of the best in Montana and surrounding states. The public have the opportunity to win a horse for $5 and the donating ranch gets publicity for their breeding program. Tickets costs $5 for one or $25 for six. The drawing is during the NILE Gold Buckle Select Horse Sale, the last Saturday of NILE. Winners may take ownership of the horse or take the proceeds from selling the horse at the sale. Earnings from ticket sales go toward NILE youth programs.

2019 Raffle Filly

1 of 7
Check out this sweet sorrel filly, Peeparoos Hot, from Jesperson Horses out of Ekalaka, Montana. She is a started two-year-old by Shiney Red Cielo and out of Hot Catalena. Shiney Red Cielo aka "Spark" is currently being shown in reined cow horse competitions. Spark is chalk full of winners and he himself is no exception. Spark is calm, gentle and fun to be around. His foals are just alike. Watch for his foals to be in the NRCHA and NCHA show pens in 2019. Spark’s offspring are excellent horses in the arena and on the ranch, too! He is a NRCHA money earner and 2x World Show Qualifier with very limited showing. His sire, Shining Spark, is an invincible stallion who was the first $3 million sire and is also now a $4 million sire.

The Jesperson family knows good horses. They raise quarter horses and do it well. They operate a cow/calf and replacement heifer ranch in Southeast Montana, the horses they use to run the ranch know how to keep their feet under them in the terrain as well as staying calm in the sorting pen. They also have the caliber to perform in the arena whether that's in a ranch rodeo, cutting competition or national reined cow horse show.

This year's raffle filly has all the potential to do amazing things. Anyone that wins her will be lucky in a lot of aspects. The winner won't win just a horse, they'll win a really nice horse. Plus a year's worth of feed from Equis Feed doesn't hurt. Tickets are $5 each or get six for the price of $25 Drawing will be Saturday, October 19th during the NILE Performance Horse Sale.
