live August 27 at 7 p.m.

Brought to you by D.L. Evans Bank


This year, Swiftsure Ranch’s 29th annual Cowboy Ball kicks up its heels virtually on August 27th at 7 pm. Co-hosts Tara Bell and Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly, will broadcast live from the Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum. 

Be sure to tune in while you enjoy dinner on-the-go at a remote location of your choice. Gather your friends for a socially-distant block party (if you choose), dust off those cowboy boots, and get ready to dance like nobody’s watching. 

Ticket holders will be able to tune in for the live broadcast on Thursday, August 27th, at 7 p.m. 

The virtual event will span 45 minutes covering a live raffle, party check-ins, the classic Pony-Up, and a view into the positive effects Swiftsure has in the lives of our participants, their families, and the community. The funds raised from this event are vital and support Swiftsure’s mission to empower individuals of all abilities to gain strength and freedom through therapeutic equine connections—all at no charge to the participant or their families. 

Dinner options are generously offered from Warfield Distillery, The Grill at Knob Hill, Power House and The Smokey Bone. Meals on-the-go cost $50 each and range from Waygu skirt steak and prime rib sliders to beef brisket, smoked turkey, and baby back ribs. Top it off with a party-pack of Swiftsure’s Spirited Pony-Up Lemonade created especially for the event by the mixologists at Warfield Distillery, and you will be rarin’ to go.
