Thank you for everyone who donated to Little Bits through Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink (BFK).

All donations go directly to helping our riders and to help new riders be able to become a part of the Little Bits family.

We would like to thank BFK for asking us to become one of their participating charities.

Their selfless efforts in helping charities around the world makes a difference in everyone's lives.

Thank you.

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.

  Thanks Sean and 96.3!!

I spend a lot of time driving in my van – to and from work in Edmonton and into Leduc from my home at Pigeon Lake.  My go-to radio station is 96.3 The Breeze and when I heard about the Helping Grand – well, of course I thought of Little Bits. I sent in the request and much to my surprise on June 24th at 8:00am I answered a call from Sean Burke. I knew immediately what he was calling about and was so thrilled that we were the chosen applicant to receive the Helping Grand that week. There are so many worthwhile causes in and around Edmonton and each a one of them is campaigning for a great cause. We are most appreciative of the money which will help to subsidize the riders in our program and continue to let persons with disabilities enjoy the benefits of horse back riding in Edmonton’s beautiful river valley. Thank Sean and 96.3!!

We would like to send a HUGE "thank you" to all those that participated in and donated to the Ultra night Run on behalf of KBH Chartered Accountants by walking and running in such a wonderful event.

KBH was able to raise over $10,00.00 to be donated to Little Bits Therapeutic Riding Association.

This help future riders enjoy riding on horse back.

To all of the parents of riders for volunteering at the party. To the Lam family for all of the delicious food prepared. To all the volunteers that made this party so much fun. To the board members who donate so much time to help keep things in order, glad you could come out and to the staff who love doing what they do. 
The FALL party was a great sucess... Thank you.
Thank you also to the Laurier Heights Community League for allowing us to rent your terrific hall.
