Serving Our Community

Swiftsure is a non-profit organization that believes in collaborating with other nonprofits for the overall well-being of the community and it’s participants.  Equine therapies and activities are free of charge to all participants, including those involved with other organizations.  We appreciate those organizations that collaborate with us for the benefit of our communities in order to make them healthier and stronger.

Higher Ground

Higher Ground Sun Valley (formerly Sun Valley Adaptive Sports) has had a relationship with Sagebrush for many years utilizing the facility, and many of the Sagebrush participants engage in Higher Ground programs as well. For 2 years our summer PACK program has been fortunate to base out of the Sagebrush Arena. PACK is an eight week summer program that serves individuals with disabilities throughout Blaine County. Swiftsure has been very accommodating and gracious with our Higher Ground therapeutic sports program serving service members injured with TBI and or PTSD.”

“ And the horses – oh my gosh. Just brushing them I couldn’t stop smiling. I have a service dog, so I could only imagine what a horse could do to improve your mood!”

Camp Rainbow Gold

American Cancer Society’s CAMP RAINBOW GOLD has cherished the opportunity for hundreds and hundreds of Idaho kids battling cancer and their siblings to enjoy carefree days of guided therapeutic horseback riding with the amazing horses and volunteers at Sagebrush/Swiftsure. This incredible partnership has flourished for 13 years and has provided such a key element of healing for so many kids facing the daily rigors of a cancer diagnosis. Several years ago Sagebrush went to the great extent of purchasing mobile riding arenas and brought the entire operation up to Camp Rainbow Gold, located North of Ketchum, in order to ease the traveling burden on the campers. The smiles on their faces are irreplaceable as they ride through the grounds and in front of their peers. What an awesome blessing Sagebrush/Swiftsure has been and continues to be for Camp Rainbow Gold. Kris Cronin~ Former Director, Camp Rainbow Gold


Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind

The Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind summer camp brings 30 campers to Swiftsure Ranch annually. The campers enjoy a day filled with riding through obstacle courses and on the trail, followed by a barbecue.



Boise VA

A group of veterans from the Boise VA spent a day at the ranch in September 2012. They each picked a horse to meet and spend some time with on the ground. Later they spent some mellow time while enjoying a Dutch oven lunch by the river, followed by learning to fly fish with Swiftsure volunteer, Pete Stepehenson.
