Live Music by Jordan Mohr
Jordan is a 19-year-old singer songwriter from Orlando, FL. She enjoys many different genres, but country music has captured her heart.
In October 2021, Jordan dropped her debut single “Haunted House”; cowritten with Michael and Caroline Walker. It’s a song about not knowing what happens behind closed doors. So often we assume someone’s life is perfect, especially through the lens of social media, but when you pull back the curtain there can be a lot of pain and heartache. Jordan is so proud of this song and hopes that when people listen to it they can come away with a little bit of a changed perspective.
This song speaks right to the heart of the Heartland Haven Foundation’s mission—further driving home the immense need for enhanced mental wellness in our communities.

Visit with Heartlands’ Healing Horses
Winston Churchill is believed to have said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”
Come and experience the healing powers of these magnificent animals. All of Heartlands’ horses have been rescued, retrained, & transitioned into therapy coaches after doing jobs that no longer suited them. Some have had more difficult pasts than others but now, through HHF, they have a purpose of helping people heal & live their best life!
Say Cheese! The Heartland Herd will be available for self-taken photos with a fall-themed scenic background. Our horses will be accompanied by a Heartland Haven Team Member.
Kid Play Zone
Enjoy kid-friendly barnyard activities! Our kid zone will include a miniature obstacle course perfect for the little ones. Other kid-friendly activities: horse shoes, sack races, an arts & crafts station, and much more!
