Kildare Riding School
It's safe to say Janet Shanahan knows her way around not only horses, but around the world of equestrians. Having worked with the likes of Torchy Millar—the chef D'equipe who led the Canadian team to the 2008 Olympics—Shanahan has traversed the show-jumping circuits of North America for more than 25 years. Since 2008, she's headed up the Kildare Riding School, where she passes on her knowledge to students regardless of age, experience level, or commitment to memorizing Black Beauty. At her school, Kildare offers a variety of lessons for children and adults and also runs events such as open houses and weekly pony rides for parents and tots.
