Passion. Dedication. Teamwork. Success.

Benchmark Farm is located in Hudsonville, Michigan, just minutes away from both Grand Rapids and Holland.  

This farm is the culmination of twenty years of hard work, planning, and a dream.  Kimberly and Jim Bench envisioned a place where riders can enjoy their horses and create lasting friendships all while enhancing their knowledge, skills and confidence both in and out of the saddle. This is not just a boarding facility; it is a comprehensive learning environment complete with lessons, training, clinics and showing opportunities.  The pride in the farm shows in it's safe, clean and well-maintained facility, dedication to continual improvement and a friendly and professional staff.

Browse the website or call for a tour (no drop-in's please) to see why Benchmark is more than a name, it's a way of life here at the farm!
