The mission of Little Britches is to expand and challenge the physical and emotional boundaries of individuals with disabilities through the movement of the horse. We facilitate sensory integration, physical strength and mental well-being. Often the demographic we serve has limited access to extracurricular activities. At Little Britches our riders are the sports stars, no longer watching from the sidelines. We serve a diverse group of people, primarily children, with a variety of disabilities including but not limited to the following autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, processing delays, auditory impairment and visual impairment. Each rider has a team of volunteers who function as either horse leaders or side walkers. Some of our riders require more assistance to ride and need the aid of a therapist. All of our instructors are certified through Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH).
