Rainbow Run Farm got its start after Brad Benson,
a former New York Giants offensive lineman, now
Hyundai's number one car dealer, was having issues with
a horse he owned. He would drive out to Pennsylvania for
lessons but found the drive was time-consuming. Brad wished
there was a closer facility catering to this elite but
When he purchased the Hillsborough, New Jersey, farm in
2007, he wanted to make it a world-class cutting horse
facility. And that is exactly what he did. The farm is
nestled on 350 sprawling acres in beautiful Somerset County.
It features indoor and outdoor arenas, two barns with 100
covered stalls and brand new cattle pens which can
accommodate up to 800 head comfortably. Find out more about
the facility here or

The Rainbow Run Team
Brad Benson is the owner of Rainbow Run Farm. A former New
York Giants offensive lineman, he was immediately drawn to
the sport of cutting after seeing it on television. Cutting
used the same principles of speed and precision, lines and
angles as the offensive line in football. Also, it appealed
to his sense of competition. Besides, he said, “since my
knees and hips aren’t working so great anymore, I figured
I’d get four legs under me instead of just my two.” He also
owns Brad Benson Hyundai and Mitsubishi in New Brunswick,
Clint is Brad’s youngest son.
He is in charge of all the hay cutting and harvesting at
Rainbow Run. It’s strangely beneficial that Clint doesn’t
ride because, if he did, there’d be no one to bring the hay
in—the hay cutting season and the horse cutting season
Destini is Brad’s daughter. Since the young age of 3, she

a very competitive non-pro rider. When not on a horse,
