Dear Volunteers and those interested in volunteering with Little Bits,

Our volunteers are critical to the success of our program and play a huge role in the accomplishments of our riders.  We could not have this program without you and we value the time and effort you all take to come down to the facility (especially in minus or plus 30C temps) to do all of the various duties that we require:  bringing horses in and taking them out, grooming, tacking, leading, sweeping, sidewalking, cleaning tack, setting up and taking down the arena, poop duty, all jobs that are significant and necessary.   And I'm sure I have missed other ways you have helped such as trying to unplug our shredder or showing up even though you didn't get a schedule!

At this time we have been unable to access our volunteer e-mail account so please send any questions, concerns, comments my way.  Or if you are going to be away please let us know at : or call our office at 780-476-1233

Krista has been doing a fabulous job of filling in for our Volunteer Coordinator and we can't thank her enough!!  She can also answer most questions you might have. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and plan to be back to normal soon.  Thank you so much and we all hope to see you on Sundays or Wednesdays, or both!!

Linda, Ros, Krista, Jo, Catherine Lisa and Lynda

Little Bits Therapeutic Riding Association

Little Bits Therapeutic Riding Association is a non-profit, charitable organization providing recreational horseback riding with therapeutic benefits for children and adults with disabilities in Edmonton Alberta. Each year, up to 195 riders benefit from our winter, spring and fall program and summer riding week.


We have programs for pre-school aged children (Itty Bits), children aged five and a half to 18 (Little Bits) and adults (Big Bits). Once a week, riders receive riding instruction by certified and experienced instructors assisted by a core of volunteers.

The focus is on skill development, enjoyment and the unique therapeutic aspects of horseback riding. Learn more about Our Programs. Click on the Twitter - Facebook - Instagram - YouTube Icons to get pictures and updates.
