About us

Little Britches was founded in 1979 by Peg Sweeney and Betty Lou McColgin. We are an equine assisted riding and driving program which allows people who are physically, emotionally, developmentally or economically challenged to interact with horses in a variety of ways.

Mission Statement: 

Changing the lives of people with disabilities using the movement of the horse. Little Britches improves physical strength, facilitates sensory integration and promotes emotional wellbeing. We provide recreation for a lifetime.
