Established in 2007, Meadowlands is situated on a picturesque property in Addison, near Brockville, Ontario. Easily accessible from both the Ottawa and Kingston areas, Meadowlands caters to the show jumping, hunter, and equitation markets of equestrian sport. Shane Wooley and Michelle Matthews are at the helm, guiding Meadowlands as it grows into one of eastern Ontario’s premier ‘A’ circuit/Trillium show barns.
Together, Shane and Michelle make a great team. Both are experienced competitors willing to share their experience and knowledge with their students. Shane has competed up to the 1.45m level and has worked with such well-known grand prix riders as Angela Covert and Mike Grinyer. Michelle has excelled in the Talent Squad division, training under such luminaries as Sandi Patterson and Olympic Team Silver Medalist Jill Henselwood. Michelle was champion in the 1.40m Jumper Division at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and has competed at the North American Young Riders’ Championships. Currently, she is working at developing her young horses in the hopes that one will blossom into her next grand prix mount.
Shane and Michelle are also excited to welcome the newest addition to the Meadowlands team, their son, Jaxon. They can’t wait to see him in the pony ring!
