About Us

Warning!Since opening in 1997, Bit by Bit has been and contin­ues to be Northeast Oklahoma's premier therapeutic riding program. Founded by Linda Barron and originally located in Claremore, Bit by Bit began as a way to make a dif­ference in the lives of individuals with special needs through equine therapy.

     Over the years, the program has relocated to Oologah and expanded to serve over 70 students, offering thera­peutic riding lessons to children and adults living with a variety of special needs. One thing hasn't changed: the commitment to making a difference in riders' lives. This is possible thanks to over 150 volun­teers, nearly 20 horses, and generous support from donors. Together, we make strides for those with special needs!

Horseback Riding

Warning!     The benefits of thera­peutic horseback riding are many and varied. Because the horse gently and rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improve­ment in flexibility, balance, and muscle strength.

     For individuals with mental or emotional disabilities, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increase confidence, patience, and self-esteem. Educational goals like letter and color recognition can be incorporated into riding activities. Lessons also provide a positive social experience for students as they inter­act with volunteers, staff members, other riders, and horses.

     Research shows that individuals of all ages who participate in equine-assisted activities and therapies can experience physical and emotional rewards.
