Senior Connection "High Hopes" Farm Visit

Tuesday, September 5, 2023

High Hopes is a private, therapeutic riding facility in Old Lyme dedicated to providing services to individuals with a wide range of disabilities and physical & emotional challenges. It is run mostly by community volunteers whose mission is to foster positive relationships and meaningful interactions in an equine setting. Folks in need can learn, grow, socialize, and heal at their own pace. At the heart of this therapeutic operation is a herd of majestic and carefully selected horses. The 127-acre facility also includes 30 acres of pastures, 3 miles of riding and driving trails, as well as indoor and outdoor arenas.

The staff at High Hopes is excited to welcome Clinton Senior Connection members to their facility and demonstrate the benefits of horse-to-human connection. Our visit on Tuesday, September 5th (from approx. 11am-1pm) will include:

  • a tour of the barn
  • a paddock walk to view & discuss the horses
  • a spot to have lunch (bring with you) and an informational presentation about High Hopes' outreach efforts
  • a walk around the pond and sensory trails
