Horse Haven of Tennessee rescues equine from neglectful and abusive situations.


We provide shelter and nourishment for abused and neglected equine.


Both trained professionals and volunteers assist in proper care for and rehabilitation of the equine.


After each equine is well on the road to recovery, our adoption committee assists with placement into a safe and loving new home.

'Through their eyes they only see sadness, so please don't turn a blind eye to their suffering'

- Nina L. Margetson - Executive Director and Founder

And I saw Heaven open, and behold a white horse; and He who sat upon him was called Faithful and True. And the armies in Heaven followed Him upon white horses. - Revelation 19:11/14 (adapted)
