...where your horse is family
Family Hill Farm is a family owned and operated farm for retired and lay-up/rehabilitation horses. Our focus is on the comfort and well-being of your equine companion through diligent, loving, individual care and treatment. Your horse is, and always will be, treated as a member of our family.
We are a 30 acre facility, located in beautiful East Tennessee at the top of our “family hill” and as such, we have someone on the property 24/7 to offer the personalized care and attention that you and your retired horse desire and to ensure the best possible equine rehabilitation.
Combined we have over 50+ years of horse ownership and caretaking experience ranging from the backyard companion horse to world class dressage and jumping performers. We promise to treat your retired horses and rehabilitation horses with the same respect and love that we have provided to all the animals that we have been lucky enough to have owned or loved throughout our lives.
Your retired horse deserves to spend its days napping in the sunshine, grazing through strikingly green pastures, and frolicking freely with its new equine retirement friends. We have companion horses that will introduce your retired horse to its new home, and it will slowly be introduced to an appropriate small herd of 2-4 horses. You will be kept updated with pictures, videos, e-mails, and phone calls. Whatever you require to set your mind at peace and know how well your horse retirement is progressing, is what we will do. We plan to spend the rest of our days here and we are opening that invitation to your special equine partner.
This property is majestic and the atmosphere is calming, it lends to healing. Our barn is spacious, airy, and bright and our paddocks are serene. In our experience, it is an ideal setting for equine rehabilitation. Combine that with exquisite care and attention to detail and your horse’s lay-up and rehabilitation will be a seamless success.
All of the horses that we care for also receive equine massage therapy. This allows us a comprehensive knowledge of your horse, its well-being, and progress. It also gives us the ability to quickly develop an understanding of your horse’s personality, likes/dislikes, and establish trust.
We are very proud of what we do here and we enjoy nothing more than making sure our horses are happy and healthy! We would like to help you and your beloved friend in this time of adjustment.
We are located less than 2 miles from the Roane State Exposition Center… weekend/show board also available.
