About Us

Lyme Trail Association

Lyme Horse Trials is one of two events that we host. The Lord Creek Hunter Pace on Sunday, September 21st is our other major fundraiser. Information about the Lord Creek Hunter Pace can be found at highhopestr.org. Both events are fundraisers for the Lyme Trail Association, High Hopes Therapeutic Riding and the Connecticut Valley Pony Club.

The Lyme Trail Association (LTA) is dedicated to the maintenance, stewardship and enjoyment of trails in Lyme and the surrounding area. We support a community of horseback riders and non-riders who appreciate the rural character of Southeastern Connecticut and understand the importance of preserving the area’s rustic nature.

This is a membership only organization, with trails open to all who pay an annual membership fee. Trail use is limited to equestrians, nature walkers, hikers and cross-country skiers. No bicycles or motorized vehicles are permitted. All members are required to wear or carry member identification.

Our Goals:
  • To maintain and promote the responsible use of the land and trails.
  • To promote good will and serve as liaison between the trail users and landowners, towns, and organizations that support these resources.
  • To provide organized support for the preservation, enjoyment and stewardship of open land in Lyme, Old Lyme and the surrounding area.
