Annual Reports

50 Years of Empowering Lives

2022 - 2023 Annual Report

There are milestones in every organization that inspire a reflective pause and celebration. March of 2024 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Lower Connecticut Valley Educational Riding, Assoc. (or more fondly known as LCVERA) and today, what we know and love as High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc.

The privilege of serving the community through the years, watching lives change, children grow, volunteers smile and horses trotting around the arena has been profound. The ability to impact so many in different ways, and to empower and improve lives, has been the driving force behind this organization.

This annual report provides a reflection of progress through the decades and a path to the future with the unveiling of a new Strategic Plan. We look forward to an impactful future serving the evolving needs of our community. We are deeply grateful for the support of our donors, volunteers and staff who empower the High Hopes mission.
