Horn was a civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. In 2001 it had a population of 9, which was included in the civil parish of Empingham at the 2011 census. The parish is part of the Exton Hall estate of the Earls of Gainsborough. The Parish of Horn with just three properties was amalgamated with Exton Parish in 2015.
In 1287, Richard son of Richard de Seyton had a manor house at Horne and in 1378 Sir John Seyton had his capital messuage here, although the manor was reportedly valueless in 1376. The land was turned from arable to pasture, which has been suggested as the cause of depopulation.
Proximity to the parish meant that the Battle of Losecoat Field during the War of the Roses was once called the Battle of Hornfield.
