Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Little Britches mission is to expand and challenge the physical and emotional boundaries of children with special needs through the use of horses. We facilitate sensory integration and the development of self esteem, physical strength, and mental well being. We provide recreation for a lifetime.

Horse-related programs:
Little Britches provides equine assisted activities and therapies to individuals with disabilities.

Non-horse-related programs:
We do not provide non-horse-related activities.
