About Rainbow Run Farm

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 growing sport.

  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 contact us for more information.

The Rainbow Run Team

Brad Benson
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, NJ.

Clint Benson
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 happen simultaneously.

Destini Benson
Destini is Brad’s daughter. Since the young age of 3, she has been going to horse shows. Now, at 18 years old, she is a very competitive non-pro rider. When not on a horse, Destini can be found with a camera in her hand. To view a sampling of her portfolio, please click here.

Margaret Jones
Margaret is the Facilities Manager. She has worked at Rainbow Run Farm for 4 years. With a farm as busy as ours, Margaret is always overseeing a new and exciting project.
