|Donate a Horse|
Thanks so much for your interest in placing your horse at the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. It is only through the generosity of people like you that we can help our riders gain self-confidence, increase muscle tone and experience the thrill of riding a horse. We may also be open to a care lease agreement with you and your equine partner.
To submit a horse for consideration, please contact Dana Richardson, Equine Director, for a questionnaire/submission form.
Below are some considerations to keep in mind regarding our requirements for horses:
It is important that your horse feel comfortable around a variety of people. Horses in our program are ridden for not more than three one-hour sessions a day. However, many people handle them over the course of each day. Several volunteers will groom and tack the horse. And in addition to the rider, a horse may have a leader and up to two side walkers (volunteers on either side of the rider for support).
After reviewing the questionnaire, if we determine that your horse seems appropriate for our program, we will arrange a time to meet and ride the horse. At that time, if we think the horse seems suitable, we will ask for a 30-day trial period at Little Bit. Depending on the age of the horse, the trial period is sometimes longer.
We appreciate you thinking of Little Bit as a placement for your horse.
