At Bit-By-Bit Medical Therapeutic Riding Center our goal is to help all of our special needs clients become as independent, strong, and confident as possible through the magic of therapeutic horseback riding! 


reiny_emily_kissOur mission is to heal, educate, enrich, inspire and empower the lives of others in our community and nation through the gifts of the horse. We strive to provide professional and top-quality therapeutic services to the families of south Florida. At Bit-By-Bit, we fundraise to provide therapeutic services to special children and adults regardless of ability to pay.

At Bit-By-Bit, we create individualized treatment plans for each of our special clients. Each of these plans recognizes the client's specific burdens and develops short and long term goals that push each client to a higher level of health, strength, and well-being. Bit-By-Bit is a family-friendly, community supported organization which recognizes the healing power that horses share with all humans. Bit-By-Bit Medical Therapeutic Riding Center was created in 1998 and became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2002.
