Educational Opportunities


Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center in Redmond, WA is offering group Social Skills classes for five through nine year olds having challenges getting along with peers.

This class will be conducted by an Occupational Therapist and will utilize a variety of approaches, including aspects of The Alert Program, The Social Thinking Curriculum, Collaborative Problem Solving, and Kelso’s Choices.  The class will feature: 

  • An active approach in the novel setting of an enclosed, covered horse arena
  • Physical challenges, including vaulting, “gymnastics on horseback”.
  • Role playing to learn specific skills for problem solving
  • A positive atmosphere, teaching participants to look for the positive and care for one another
  • One horse shared among the group. Participants will have some time on the back of the horse, but riding skills will not be taught.
  • The group will be led by an occupational therapist and involve a professional horse handler, and specially-trained volunteers.
