My name is Rae Ellen Siegmyer. I am the owner of Achin?Acres Farm and Stables. The farm has been in business since 1968 starting in North Royalton,
Ohio. We moved the operation to Hinckley, Ohio in the spring of 1977. I worked closely with my parents, Bob and Milly Siegmyer and sisters, Alice and Robin in the running of the
boarding business and the Appaloosa breeding program. Handling the stallion, Monte-High 241224 for breeding outside mares and our own breeding stock was one of my most important
functions as the Barn Manager. I also trained the foals and showed them at futurities to get them ready for sale.
During this time, I also took on outside training and showing for others. I showed many different breeds of horses including, Appaloosas, Arabians, Half-Arabians,
Morgans, Quarter Horses, Saddlebreds and several others. I also learned to ride hunt and saddle seat on my own, as before this time I had only ridden stock seat.
Several years ago, things changed. The breeding stock had to be sold due to the health of my parents. A few years later, my parents agreed to sell the farm to me,
making me "a deal I couldnಥfuse". I quit my full-time job as a chef, and took over my lifeलeam of running the farm. Judging, lessons, and showing horses are now my full-time
I am carded to judge horses in the Pinto Horse Association, International Buckskin Association, American Buckskin Registry, Pony of Americas Club and National Snaffle Bit
Association. I am also listed in the states of Ohio and Michigan to Judge 4-H horse shows.
I am a former 9 year 4-H member and was a 4-H advisor in
Medina County for at least 21 years. I ride and give lessons in Hunt, Saddle and stock seats to youth and adults.
On a personal note: With 48 years of working with horses and youth I find even though there are frustrations, and drawbacks, I find watching youth succeed in life
through their working with horses, most gratifying. Horses teach patience, hard work and responsibility.
