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

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.
