Bit by Bit Therapeutic Riding Center was founded in 1997. The goal and mission of this program is to benefit and improve the lives of those challenged with special needs using horses in a therapeutic environment. Employing the movement and kind spirit of the horse, individuals focus on the improvement of cognitive, physical and emotional need areas during their weekly rides. Each student is supported by a horse leader, and one or two side walkers as they ride, providing not only physical assistance but encouragement and motivation. Each lesson is carefully planned by the instructor to provide riders with activities to increase coordination, balance and living skills that are geared to go with the rider outside the arena into their daily lives and routine. Family members are inspired by the growth and enjoyment that their loved one experiences while on the horse. These experiences provide shared motivation and an increase of the skill building required to enable each individual with the best possible ability inventory to approach a more independent lifestyle.
