Bergen County Horse Rescue's mission is Caring for Horses Mind, Body and Soul, and our focus is rescuing and rehabilitating horses in need.

Our beautiful 17-acre farm provides a safe and healthy environment for our rescues to live and interact in a herd community. We provide reconditioning and behavioral training for horses who are fit and healthy in order to place them in a forever home where they can be loved and cared for. For horses that are no longer capable of working due to a disability or old age, our facility provides a tranquil and safe sanctuary.  All horses not adopted out will always have a loving home at Bergen County Horse Rescue.  

Our vision is to generate awareness within our community about equine care as well as be an environmentally conscious resource through educational tours and visits with our horses.
