About Us 

Middle Ridge Farm & Rescue is a small family owned farm and animal rescue conveniently nestled among the hills of Middletown, MD.  Our farm is friendly, family-oriented and fun!  All disciplines and skills of riders are welcome.

Over 30 years ago, a common love for horses and a desire to serve the equestrian community led Rick and Leslie Nielson to found Middle Ridge Farm and later Middle Ridge Animal Rescue, Inc..
The farm serves a sanctuary and soft landing place to equines, felines, and canines in need while education the community on humane animal husbandry and responsible pet ownership.  

Today, their daughter Whitney Thompson is proud to serve as the farm manager.
