Riding the trails
East Lyme — Horseback riders participate in a Pleasure Trail Ride organized by the Connecticut Morgan Horse Association through the Nehantic State Forest on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021.
The ride started at Hallelujah Hill and continued for 9 miles through the forest with some riders deciding to do the loop twice. Director Wanda Stazick said the group tries to organize at least four pleasure rides a year, which are open to members and non-members.
"The pandemic has slowed us down a bit, but we're all excited to hit the trails," she said. The group's next ride is a Turkey Trot at Bluff Point State Park in Groton on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021. See more on the organization at https://www.ctmorgans.org/
