We will be displaying all of our rideable horses, giving pony rides for smaller children and at 2:00 pm we will host a Horse Ownership Class. This month's topic is preparing your horse for trail riding and practicing trail obstacles. So bring your apples and carrots and have some fun in the sun with the HHT horses!

3. Next, on July 19th, Horse Haven will be taking over Family Night at the Cotton Eyed Joe! Horse Haven will be receiving the proceeds for everyone who comes out and partakes in the event. On Family Night there are no alcohol sales, free dance lessons, and food! So bring your family and come out at 6:00 pm and support Horse Haven. Depending on the weather, a rescue horse or two may make a special appearance in the Joe's parking lot!

4. Finally, be on the lookout for more info as Horse Haven is sponsoring a Dancing for the Horses - Western Style competition. Four teams of local Knoxville celebrities will compete in a dancing competition to raise money for HHT. The competition will be held at the Cotton Eyed Joe, date and time to be determined.
