Raffle Horse


The 2022 NILE Filly Raffle has been cancelled. During a routine pre-sale Veterinary check, a minor umbilical hernia was detected that will require surgical repair and recovery time. Therefore, we will be unable to present the filly at the NILE and have chosen to cancel this year’s raffle. All tickets that have been purchased will be refunded.

Please contact Bonnie with any questions. (406) 256-2497 or bonnie@thenile.org

The NILE is very grateful for the continued support of the filly’s donor, Diamond D Quarter Horses owned by Dakota & Jamie Gaustad; the filly’s trainer, Robby Moore; and the filly’s sponsor, CHS Equis Feeds.

Although the situation is unfortunate, the 2022 NILE Raffle Filly, DD ROYAL DOC OAK, will be able to make a full recovery after the necessary surgery.

Thank you to the numerous ticket buyers for supporting the NILE!! We know and appreciate that many of you have faithfully purchased tickets for the raffle horse year after year!

Please check back in 2023 for information on next year’s NILE 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 an established ranch. These horses are some of the best in Montana and surrounding states. The public has 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 the NILE Stock Show & Rodeo. Winners may take ownership of the horse or take the proceeds from selling the horse during the sale. Earnings from ticket sales go toward NILE youth programs.
Thank you to all our horse donors!
