“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.

We’ve Out Grown Our Little Barn

Our herd, programs and number of participants have doubled over the past few years and our facility needs to catch-up. A NEW BARN AND LEARNING CENTER will allow us to do just that!  This is a $800,000 campaign and we already have $400,000 committed along with a matching fund grant of $200,000.

Individual, Group and Corporate Donations are gratefully accepted!

Our Values
