Vision Statement  -  Empowering the lives of individuals with disabilities using the movement of the horse.

Mission Statement   - The mission of Little Britches is to enrich the lives of people with disabilities through therapeutic riding and equine-assisted activities.  Little Britches improves physical strength, facilitates sensory integration, and provides recreation for a lifetime.
