    Horse Haven of Tennessee presents Dancing for the Horses, an evening of entertainment, a benefit to raise money for the care of abused and neglected horses across Tennessee. Dancing for the Horses pairs local celebrities with professional dancers from Go Dance to compete for awards and bragging rights. In addition to his or her dance, celebrity dancers have the chance to earn additional votes before the event through fundraising. Each dollar donated is one vote towards their final score. At the end of the night, the winners will be announced and the coveted Isaac Award given to the dancer with the highest total of their dancing score and their fundraising efforts.

    About HHT: Horse Haven of Tennessee is an equine welfare organization that works with local law enforcement and state agriculture investigators to rescue abused and neglected equine across the state. We also provide evidence of abuse and neglect to local law enforcement for use in prosecution cases. When a horse’s case is done in court and has been released into our care, we make sure that it is healthy enough for a new home and find it an adopter. We do also provide assistance programs for owners who are going through hard times. For more information, please visit,
