specialized programs. Individual differences are celebrated in an enriching recreational experience.
The Little Britches mission is to expand and improve the physical and emotional well being of individuals with special needs through the use of horses and ponies. They facilitate sensory integration and the development of self esteem, physical strength, and mental well being.
