Our New Facility

The Whitemud Equine Centre has been our home since 1975. It is an ideal location for Little Bits, accessible by DATS, E.T.S. and it offers easy access to major highways. In 2017 we said "Good-Bye" to our old barn and arena and "Hello" to our new facility that the City of Edmonton and Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association came together to build.

 

The new facility allows Little Bits to expand the program allowing it run throughout the year. We are now able to accommodate the needs of more individuals with special needs in our community. 

Advantages of the New Facility

  • Office space for WELCA and LBTRA (shared)

  • Lunch Room/Volunteer Room with Kitchen/ Water

  • Event rental space which will help Little Bits generate revenues in order to become self-sustainable. We can also use the space for events

  • Climate controlled Stables for volunteers to work with the horses

  • Tack Rooms (separate WELCA and LBTRA)

  • Wash Bay (used only as directed)

  • Climate controlled indoor riding arena

  • Accessible for everyone

  • A facility that will allow us to run our programs all year long

  • Indoor accessible washrooms

  • Safe environment

 

Yes, it did happen... the ground breaking ceremony was held by WELCA with a huge audience attending. A pair of Belgian horses were used with a plow and onlooker were able to pose for photo's after the initial ceremony.
