Little Britches in Litchfield CT offers therapeutic horseback riding to more than 60 kids with autism and other special needs every week. Little Britches is owned by the Daly family, who with a lot of volunteers, works with the children on riding and brushing the horses. Hippotherapy has been found to help children with social skills, balance, and cognitive skills. The kids feel a sense of responsibility and pride as they ride atop the horse with a volunteer at their side. Little Britches asks for only a small donation from participating families and survives on outside donations and grants.
