2019 Welcome Note

It’s a little late, but welcome 2019! The new year has created some challenges for us here at the farm already!  Mother Nature is keeping us busy with snow, rain and ice, which our old horses don’t care for!  We are excited for 2019 lessons and events to start!  We will be adding to our calender as other dates arise for clinics, horse shows, special events, and more!

Due to our crazy farm lives, our lesson programs will not start until after spring break this year!  Lesson Registration and Session Dates are updated so please check that out!  The first week of lessons will be April 8th. 

We do have some great events this year at the farm.  In May we are hosting Tim Lelito’s Adult Field Day Event.  This will be held outback by the pond on May 11th.  Please go to his website for information.  We are also welcoming Lynn Palm back on May 18th and May 19th for a Western Dressage Clinic.  This clinic is beneficial for all disciplines in the horse industry, as well as all levels of riding.  Auditing is available, so please check out our events tab for all the details on the Lynn Palm Clinic.

Of course, our July is going to bust as usual with our Swampfoot 4 Mile Obstacle course race on July 13th.  Registration is open so please go register and get signed up early so you can get a free t-shirt at check in!  There is always something new to our race, so gather your friends and put a team together or brave it by yourself and meet some fellow Swampfooters!!  July 14-21 is our amazing St. Clair County Goodells 4H Fair.  This is amazing fair with lots to offer.  There will be no lessons during this week, so if you are looking for us, we will be at the fair!

As the year falls into the Fall, so do lessons and holidays.  Please note that if your lesson day falls on a major holiday, we will discuss options during lessons in the weeks before to decide what is the best plan for the group.

We hope you all enjoy this year with us here at Rattle Run Farms!

Busy Busy Farm Life…

Happy summer! Rattle Run Farms would like to remind everyone of all the events happening around the farm this summer.  We not only offer horseback riding lessons, we are a working farm.  Fastly approaching us is hay season, Swampfoot4Mile, 4-H Fair, Horse shows, and summer heat!  Due to all our daily commitments, Rattle Run Farms riding lesson program will take a break during July and resume in August.  If you are interested in riding lessons, please fill out the forms and schedule your farm visit before August 14th, when the next session begins.

Swampfoot4Mile is coming soon on July 8th!  If you are interested in running, or volunteering for this event, please visit http://www.swampfoot4mile.com to register!  It is the best mud run around with challenging obstacles sure to leave you winded and wet!  Its a great time for the whole family.  Liberty Riders, Inc. will be running the beer tent and concessions again this year as a fundraiser for that program.  We are always looking for volunteers to work the big obstacles, water tables, and finish line! 

The 4-H Goodells County Fair begins July 17th - July 22nd.  It is an amazing youth fair that every family should go experience and see all the things our local kids can do!  Horses, cows, pigs, goats, dogs, bunnies, art, writing, baking, shooting, and so many more!

Rattle Run Farms will also be having our own Dressage Show Series! We have two weekends left, one weekend in August (26 & 27) and a weekend in October (14 & 15).  Please see our event tab for more information on horse shows.

Thank you all for supporting our farm, our programs, and all the extras we do!  Enjoy your summer!
