|Shepard Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center [visit web site]|
During the summer of 2004, Janis Clifton became aware of the availability of a property suitable for development as a therapeutic riding center and shared her vision with three friends: Jacqui Brooks, David Desmarais and Anne Perreault. Together, the four of them envisioned Shepard Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center (SMTRC), a therapeutic riding facility to serve the community of Bristol and the surrounding towns, for the benefit of challenged individuals, especially children, fulfilling a lifelong dream of the property's late owner, Katharine Shepard. These four individuals, joined by Sherry Lockhart, became the founding directors of SMTRC and developed a business plan to start this venture, presented the plan to the custodians of the property under Miss Shepard's will, and in December of 2004 obtained permission to use it as the home of SMTRC
