Therapeutic Riding

Horse of the Month

Buddy
High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc.
Old Lyme, CT


Buddy came to High Hopes in the spring of 2006, and he has been a hard working member of our equine staff ever since. Buddy is a wonderfully tolerant, smart and sweet horse who is endlessly patient with his riders. At 1600 pounds, Buddy is largest horse in our herd but he is so trustworthy and honest that it can be easy to forget how big he is. He loves to be ridden independently and on the trail. High Hopes in thrilled to have this “gentle giant” as a member of our therapeutic herd! Buddy often greets visitors to the farm who are meeting their first horse, and he also brings participants back year after year because he is their favorite horse. In just six short years at High Hopes, Buddy won enough volunteer and participant votes to be Horse of the Year in 2012. One of his volunteers even put “Vote for Buddy” posters all over the building!

Buddy is one of 27 therapeutic riding horses at High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc. in Old Lyme, CT. High Hopes offers riding, driving, and other equine activities for adults and children with disabilities year round. We are always looking for volunteers 14 years and older to assist with our therapeutic lessons, helping in the barn, and running our special events.

Visit our website http://highhopestr.org or contact Megan at mellis@highhopestr.org or (860)434-1974 to learn more.

About Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic riding is the use of equine activities for individuals with physical or mental disabilities to improve muscle tone, motor development, balance, posture, coordination and overall emotional well-being. Riders can experience a sense of independence that they may not be able to experience anywhere else.

Most therapeutic riding centers are non-profit, and therefore, they rely heavily on volunteers.  If you have the time to give, check out a TR center near you!  

TR centers are often on the lookout for qualified therapy horses.  An ideal therapy horse is quiet, patient and priceless.  If you 'd like to donate a horse you think might be suitable for such a program, contact your local therapeutic riding center.  Not every horse can be a therapy horse, but those who can will find that life as a TR horse can be quite good!
