Mission Statement

Bit by Bit seeks to provide youths and adults in our community with an opportunity to heal physically and emotionally through the accepting and calming companionship of horses.

Description

Bit by Bit is a Corvallis, Oregon-based therapeutic riding program serving children and adults in Benton and Linn Counties through custom-tailored riding sessions. Our programs assist clients with a range of diagnoses including Down Syndrome, Prader Willi syndrome, Cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury with paralysis, Autism, hearing impairment, ADHD, general anxiety disorder and depression. We also serve several bereavement clients.

Our therapy horses lift up their riders, giving them a new and different view of the world around them. Therapeutic riding assists clients through the rhythmic movement of the horse. Research has shown that the movement of the horse moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, often improving flexibility, balance and muscle strength in riders with physical disabilities.
