Keep the Trails in Lyme and Lord Creek Farm Open for Equestrian Use!

Lyme Trail Association

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.

Thanks for visiting, we encourage you to join the LTA, and welcome your support of our efforts through donations and volunteering your time.

Introduction to Foxhunting Clinic 

Sunday, May 3, 2015 @ Lord Creek Farm 10am-1pm

Fee: Adults $40, Pony Club and Juniors $0, Audit for free!

Attire: Breeches, polo shirt, boots, and helmut

Provided by: Tanheath Hunt

Open to: LTA members, CVPC, and thier guests

The day will start with an unmounted lecture. Covering the history, traditions, etiquette, and protocol of foxhunting. Informational booklets will be provided to all. There will be a question and answer period then the mounted clinic will begin.
Riders will be divided into groups, called Fields, according to riding ability and hunting experience. All levels are invited -- even Walk Trot!  Anyone can enjoy a hunt! There will be exercises that imitate riding in the hunt. When everyone has learned their exercises, there will be a short “hunt” that will prepare you for a real hunt in the fall.
After the mounted clinic we will return to the barn and enjoy a “tea” where everyone may ask more questions and relay their stories of “the hunt”.   Please join us for a fun filled day!
