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, more than 115 riders benefit from our spring and fall program and 50 riders in our winter program.

 

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.
