Hayes Horse Haven was founded by David & Christina Hayes. We started caring for abandoned and neglected horses in Tennessee. After several years in Tennessee, we were presented with a wonderful opportunity to purchase a larger farm, which would benefit the horses, and had room to rescue and rehabilitate more horses.
David was born and raised in East Tennessee, he comes from a long line of generational farmers. He grew up around horses, watching his older brother train and show Tennessee walking Horses.
Christina Hayes, was born and raised in South Florida, however she was privileged to be around horses, as her uncle bred and showed Arabian Horses.
Fast forward to the union of David and Christina Hayes, they started their own family farm and started taking in sick and unwanted horses. For several years they rescued and rehabilitated horses on their own.
In 2020, in the midst of a Pandemic together they decided to not only purchase a larger farm in Virginia to house more horses, but decided to make the rescue official calling it Hayes Horse Haven.
We want to rescue horses, give them a second chance at life, give them a purpose, a job if you will. Horses are such magnificent creatures, and can touch your soul in more ways than you can ever imagine. We both feel that rescued horses have so much love and attention to give back in return for saving their lives. Using love and patience we teach horses to trust humans again.
Once they've been cleared by our group of veterinarians we take their rehabilitation one step above. Our retired seniors provide children and adults with much needed love and attention. We visit schools, retirement homes, and community centers with some of our retired seniors whom love to be brushed, pet, hugged, and fed treats. It's great, both for the horses and the residents of our local communities.
Some of our resident horses provide riding lessons and trail rides. This allows them to have a job, gives them a purpose, all while experiencing long lasting love.
