River Edge Farm Horse Rescue is a 501c(3) public charity owned and operated by Jane McAllister and Ken McAllister who have been rehabilitating horses for many years. We 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 downturn in the economy, the number of horses at the rescue has greatly increased causing increased needs for funds and donations. Tax deductible donations are always welcomed and greatly appreciated.
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 Veterinary 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 better candidates for adoption. The Rescue is also a supporter of Mustang Heritage Foundation.
Jane has been a lifelong horse lover and has a BS and MS in Animal Industry from Penn State University. She has four grown children. After raising her kids, she returned to school and got an RN with an ADN and BSN from Penn State. Since then, she has worked fulltime in nursing. In addition to running the Rescue, Jane is an active member of the Hickman County Humane Society.
Ken is an AFA Certified Farrier who has been involved with horses most of his life. He helps out with many things at the Rescue, from evaluating horses and bringing them to the Rescue, to providing farrier services, basic horse training, and baling hay. Ken has competed several times as a trainer in the Extreme Mustang Makeover.
