“With Horses, Making Forward Strides”


Shepard Meadows is a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation located on a tranquil 26 acre farm in Bristol, Connecticut.

Like other non-profit organizations, we are negatively affected by this crisis and now set out to replace the revenue lost through the cancellation of programs. Did you know it costs about $200 per day to care for our herd?

Last year we participated in The Traveler’s Championship “Birdies for Charities” program, where every dollar raised receives a bonus of 15%, so we are encouraging all our friends and supporters to help us during this difficult time. Our goal is $15,000, a figure that is in celebration of our 15 years of serving the community, and to top last year’s amount.

Our Mission

To support the growth and well-being of all individuals, including those with special needs, by providing Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) in a safe and professional environment.

Our Vision

To bring the beauty and peace of our farm into the lives of the participants and families who visit, as well as our whole community – while helping people grow through accessible and compassionate programming.

Our Values

Care – Encourage – Inspire – Support – Trust – Understand


Our PATH certified instructors, dedicated volunteers & directors, and equine partners are vital to supporting the growth and well-being of all individuals.


Whether you are a group looking to devote a day or an individual looking to help out during the week, your time and energy will always be greatly appreciated and rewarding!


Donations from individuals, corporate partners, and foundations help ensure we are not only sustainable, but also allow us to grow our programming and maintain our facility.
