|High Hopes was designed to be fully accessible
to people with a wide range of disabilities. Assistive
technology is available both indoors and outdoors for use by riders
as needed, to ensure that everyone can participate in High Hopes’ programs.
High Hopes is located on 126 acres in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
Our grounds include 30 acres of pastures with paddocks, over
3 miles of trails for riding and carriage driving, an outdoor
arena, and a specialized Sensory Integration Trail.
