Resthaven Horse Rescue, located in Cannon Falls, MN was founded in December 2015 by these ordinary horsewomen whose love of horses led them to an extraordinary mission: To turn what some would call ‘worthless’ horses into loved and valued equine partners, to be compassionate champions of neglected and abused horses and to do everything in their power to save as many of these majestic, gentle creatures as humanly possible. Coming from varying backgrounds both professional and amateur, they use their combined knowledge and experience to further benefit horses of all shapes and sizes by giving them a second chance at life as well as a future. Their goal is to improve the life of equines by educating, networking and offering assistance to owners, rehabilitating abused and neglected equines, working with law enforcement and most importantly placing them into safe, loving permanent homes where they can live their years in peace while bringing love and companionship to those who care for them.


Resthaven Horse Rescue is a 501-C non profit that survives mainly on donations.


They also stage events to raise needed funds and awareness of our mission.
