About Us 

Safe Haven Equine Rescue was established by some of Northeast Texas' caring horsemen and horsewomen.  These dedicated individuals are responsible for the rescue, funding, and day to day care of Safe Haven's special residents.  

Our Staff

Richard Fincher is our Executive Director.  He is the primary contact for horses in need and directs the day to day activity and care of the residents. 

 There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.

Mission Statement 

Safe Haven Equine Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of abused, retired, or neglected horses.  It is our goal to provide assistance to horse owners in time of need, rescue horses, restore them to optimal health through diet and veterinary care when necessary, and find adoptive homes for them when possible.  If a horse cannot be appropriately adopted due to age or disability, Safe Haven will provide a home where they can peacefully live out the rest of their lives with dignity.
