River Edge Farm Horse Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that is owned and operated by Jane McAllister and her son Ken, who have been rehabilitating horses for many years. They have 63 beautiful acres in Middle Tennessee where horses of all breeds and ages are taken in and cared for. Due to the drought in 2007 and the recent down turn in the economy, the number of horses at the rescue has greatly increased, causing an increase in the need for funds. Tax deductible donations are always welcomed, and are fully used to help with costs of the rescue.
We strive to provide the best care possible for every horse that comes to the rescue by beginning with an individual evaluation. Each horse receives vet care (including dental work and vaccinations), hoof care, and a nutrition plan. Professional hoof care is donated by Ken’s Farrier Service. Nutrition requirements and feeding schedules are developed initially, and then adjusted as the horse progresses. In addition to the basics, some horses have special needs that require long term training in order to make them candidates for adoption.
