Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center improves the bodies, minds, and spirits of children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted therapy and activities, and to be an inspiration and educational resource to the therapeutic riding profession, both regionally and nationally.
Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization that offers a unique approach to therapy. Children, youth, and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities from the greater Puget Sound area are enrolled in weekly therapeutic horseback riding classes that improve physical health, provide a sense of accomplishment, control, and emphasize the capabilities of each rider.
I have volunteered at Little Bit for about 6 years before going off to college and I miss volunteering there almost everyday. When I come home it is always nice to be able to volunteer there in my free time. Little Bit does great things for all their riders and volunteers.
I volunteer there every week and I love it. I have been there all most a year. I love all the kids, the other volunteers, and who could forget the horses!!!! My mom has also volunteered there when she was my age!
Little Bit was the most fulfilling volunteer work I have ever done. The staff is extremely professional and kind, the students are wonderful, and the volunteers are great! I'd reccommend this organization to anyone looking to volunteer or anyone looking for a fun therapy session!

Little Bit is overflowing with really wonderful and unusually giving people of all kinds: riders, families, volunteers, staff - even the horses! If you're fed up with bad news and the state of the world, come spend time in our barn and you'll be glad you did.
