Horsemanship at Shepard Meadows
Bristol Parks, Recreation, Youth and Community Services is happy to partner with Shepard Meadows in Bristol to offer un-mounted horsemanship lessons to the community. Our un-mounted horsemanship program teaches horse skills such as grooming, tacking, and leading but also provides opportunities to challenge participants to persevere, problem solve, communicate and promotes the development of self-esteem.
A growing body of research demonstrates that teaching horsemanship skills can promote emotion and social well-being in participants, serve as character education, and promote the social skills and leadership in youth and children, in particular.
This is not a riding program, but you will be working hands on with one of Shepard Meadow's wonderful horses. Shepard Meadows is located at 733 Hill Street in Bristol.
