About The Farm
Dream Hayven began in WI in 2005, but moved south in 2012 for the betterment and expansion of the breeding herd. We discovered the perfect property, located in the beautiful Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee, on the Pennyroyal Plateau, with acreage that is especially suited to raising Fell Ponies. Our ecosystem is unique the world over, known as a woodland pasture ecosystem, and is identical to the ecosystem found in Cumbria, England! It is also the same system that envelopes the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, renowned as a horse breeder's paradise. Our water comes from the Bennett Hill Spring, a limestone aquifer known since the 1800's for its healing properties, and good enough to be bottled locally by Nestle!
We have hills, valleys, forests & streams in the fields that the herd roams freely all year. This environment closely mirrors the Fell environment of northern England, the homeland of all Fell Ponies, and ensures that the heritage traits so inherent in this breed will continue to survive in the Dream Hayven prefix.
The farm includes two large barns (one for livestock and one for storage of hay & equipment), a large corral for the safe training of young stock, an outdoor arena, and a newly constructed maternity barn and birthing stall. Natural trails abound in the area.
