I will give you a full disclosure on any horse you are interested in. You will have access to a 1 hour complimentary lesson with me and your new horse at the time of adoption. I will also be available if you have questions about your adopted horse in the future. – Kristen Breakfield 931-306-6623 | kristen.b@horsehumane.org

Interested in adding to your family?

Still looking for your right equine friend to add to your family? Well, look no farther. We have some wonderful equines that are waiting for their right home. Here is their information and pictures.

Hi, my name is Ellie. I am a 19-year-old double registered Kentucky/ Rocky Mountain Mare. I am 15 hands tall. I have been a broodmare for 8 years, so I am a little rusty under saddle but was a beginner horse at one time. I have COPD that was diagnosed last spring in Florida. My owners brought me up to Tennessee in hopes I would be more comfortable. I am much better but the vet believes I would do much better in a home a little more north. My adoption fee is waived to help in the cost of transport and care. I am an extremely sweet horse and just want to be loved and give love.

Hi, my name is Koda. I am a 3-year-old Paint Arabian cross mare. I am 14.3 hands tall. I am very hard to catch but getting curious about people. I have had a halter on and lead a little bit but I still need a lot of training. I am a really a pretty thing and have a ton of potential. Adoption Fee: $300.00

Hi, my name is Pandora. I am a 13-year-old quarter horse mare. I am 14.3 hands tall. I have not had much training but I have a ton of potential. I have had a halter on but I don’t lead well and I’m very hard to catch. I show extreme potential to make a nice jumping horse and have a lot of natural scope. I will start my training soon.

Hi, my name is Artemus. I am an 11-year-old Halflinger Cross Mare. I am 13.3 hands tall. I am a very well trained horse but too sensitive for beginner riders. I would make a great dressage horse with a little bit of collection. I ride off your seat so I do not like a heavy handed rider. I do better when I am worked regularly. I am ready for an advance or confident intermediate rider.

Hi, my name is Mae. I am a 15-year-old Quarter Horse Mare. I am 15.3 hands tall. I am a very nice horse and my previous owner says I am trained very well.

I will see the farrier soon for my special shoes. It is predicted that I am suitable for light riding by a beginner rider.

Update on Emaciated Horse and Tennessee Welfare Laws

The horse that was suffering so horribly that we have been investigating and trying to get help for has been humanely put to sleep and buried on the property.  We are so thankful that her suffering has ended, but are terribly saddened it took so long to get her the help she has needed for years.

Reporter Alex Apple with Fox 17 in Nashville is truly a friend of the animals.  Today he spent hours following up on the story about the emaciated horse with horrible knees.  Alex spent the day working on a very special story that will air at 9:00 pm CST, you can watch it live – click here.


Alex also talked to Tennessee Representative Johnny Shaw who is in the Agriculture Department and shared with Rep. Shaw the law regarding horses in Tennessee.  Rep. Shaw was very interested about the law and how he can help change it for the betterment of all animals in Tennessee, including horses! Please take a moment of your time to contact Rep Shaw and let him know you support him and his work on bettering the laws for horses in Tennessee, his contact information is at this link – click here.


We have started a petition to ask the Tennessee Legislature to help horses and other animals in Tennessee.  Even if you don’t think your name will do any good, there is major power in numbers, so please take a minute and sign it, especially if you can sign it before the newscast to really make the biggest impact!  –  click here.
