Hunter Horse Haven Inc was originally created to save horses from slaughter, rehabilitate and contractually rehome them, however we have previously opened our doors on Sundays, free of charge, for families to meet our horses and learn about issues in the Australian horse industry and enjoy the freedom of wide open spaces with loving horses. We plan to reintroduce these days, once we have completed works following the devastating flood in early 2021.
The feedback we received was all positive especially the impact our horses had on depressed teenagers suffering anxiety and lacking confidence.
The smiles on the kids faces made us realise we could help not just horses but our local youth who desperately needed help and a reason to look forward to the next week.
At the same time our formerly abused horses enjoy the company of young people learning all humans are not abusive and bad.
For this reason we implemented our mental health and disability program to help these kids battle their depression and look forward to their next visit.
Parents and carers of these kids have appreciated the progress they have made in such a short time.
We enjoy the absolute joy on the faces of all our visiting teenagers and for that reason have continued our free Family Sundays and programs.
Family Sunday is from 9.30am until MIDDAY with the address provide via private message or email prior to visiting.
All the smiles say everything.
Many happy memories being formed which will last forever.
