ABOUT

Hunter Horse Haven Inc. is a registered Not-For-Profit Charity with Deductible Gift Recipient Status formed to provide a rehabilitation and contractual rehoming service for unwanted horses in NSW.

We accept all horse breeds with our goal to save, retrain, rehabilitate and rehome horses who were previously neglected or destined for slaughter.

Gelding named ‘K’ we received from a neglect property. September 2020.

With over 40 years experience in the horse industry we supply a list of services in conjunction with rehabilitation, these include the following.

Human Services–  We provide open family day on Sundays for adults and children to spend time with our rehab horses. Our Sundays have expanded to help adults, teenagers and children suffering from depression which has provided an incredible positive difference in many people’s lives.

We have expanded to include programs for mentally challenged and/or depressed adults, children, their families and carers to visit and connect with our horses.

Volunteering-

Support from people via volunteering helps us rehabilitate and rehome a larger number of horses and provide the top level care our horses deserve.

Without volunteers to help provide care for our horses, fundraise and aid in management our Charitable Organisation would fail.

Volunteering is easy and can include just spending time with a horse, brushing and tidying a horse or feeding and fencing.

Or helping with fundraising and management requirements.

It is up to the person volunteering to choose to do what makes them comfortable and their visit an enjoyable experience.

Many of our horses have previously been starved and/or abused and just need someone to spend quality time with them and show them not all humans are bad.

Please message or email us if you are willing to volunteer your time to help our organisation.

We desperately need volunteers.

All horses are provided with the very best care and emotional support required to encourage trust and companionship.

 Sometimes owners of neglected horses on properties just wont accept any help offered nor surrender their horses.

We provide every horse with vet assessment, vaccinations, hoof trimming, dentistry and physical and emotional rehabilitation.

All our horses are microchipped, vaccinated, and provided with a photo passbook containing all the information on their health and training we can provide.

Most of the time horses we receive have absolutely no previous medical or training history.
