River Run Farm is a very active youth and family oriented barn. We have a large group of young riders learning to be fierce competitors; however, they are also learning to display the highest level of sportsmanship and Southern-style manners. They consistently bring home ribbons from every competition they enter, and at the same time they are commended by others for the way they handle themselves at other arenas.

We are very proud of our young riders! River Run hosts fund raisers and Fun Day Horse Shows. Our Fun Day Shows are organized and executed by our advanced riders and specifically tailored for our younger riders just starting out! The young riders enjoy their time in the spotlight, and the shows are enjoyed by everyone who attends! When the weather allows, we also enjoy cookouts and outdoor movie nights.

River Run is a full service horse facility providing lessons for all ages and skill levels. We have lessons to help you achieve any goal such as competitive rodeo riding, western pleasure riding, trail riding, and basic horsemanship.

The main purpose of River Run Farm is to enhance our young riders’ experiences and to have fun in a horse friendly, family environment.

History & Philosophy

When We Started

We were established January 1, 2007, in Leeds, Alabama, and have grown from a small inactive barn with a few horses to a complete horse facility with many horses, a full-sized outdoor arena, a small indoor arena, a large indoor facility with 15 enclosed stalls, and 5 plush pastures! What we are most proud of is our barn family.
