It was easier to sit on Stormy to reach those tall spots! We can't get over how relaxed and happy he is!

Another beautiful day ends at Thor's Safe Haven

Thor was a rescue Belgian/Mustang cross who captured the hearts of everyone he met.


Thor's Safe Haven is an equine retirement farm located in Oxford, North Carolina, but it's more than that! It is a celebration of the life lessons that Thor passed along in his own way.


Thor inspired a promise: We'll never stop helping horses, especially ones that aren't perfect. Thor had cancer, allergies, autoimmune disease, and COPD. Rescue horses have a lot of physical, mental, and emotional baggage, but when you add illness and injury it can be overwhelming. Many potential adopters walk away from this combination. These horses have feelings and personalities just like Thor did. We will never stop fighting for them.


Unfortunately, Thor decided we were ready to go on without him. Carrying his spirit in our hearts, we strive to pass his zest and determination on to others.

We are a 501(c) 3 organization and a North Carolina non-profit corporation.
