Connecticut State Parks

MADISON 12/19/25 Kari Thibodeau, of Salem, takes her horse Apples out for a run on a nearly deserted beach at Hammonassett Beach State Park. Thibodeau said her horse likes to run, so they come to the Hammonasset during the winter, when the park is quiet to avoid areas open to hunting. Apples is a Lippitt Morgan, a breed with specific characteristics of a traditional, old style Morgan horse. Bob MacDonnell/The Hartford Courant ORG XMIT: 0007737ABOB MACDONNELL / Hartford Courant
