Following A dream

For founder and Executive Director Jackie Wikane, Hope Rising Farm is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Jackie founded Hope Rising Farm in 2017, with little more than some land, an old barn in need of some “TLC” and three of her own horses.

In May 2023, Jackie expanded her dream and moved from her 9-acre farm to a new 43-acre facility in Amenia, NY which features an indoor arena and allows lessons to continue year-round.
