Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center will open its doors to the community from noon to 2 p.m. on Dec. 3 at 18675 N.E. 106th St., Redmond.

Activities start with a photo opportunity with Blaze, a retired Seattle Police horse, and the program showcase will feature narrated demonstrations of the Little Bit Hippotherapy and Adaptive Riding programs, as well as an introduction to Harvest, a new retired Seattle Police horse, and Pete, a new mini horse. Guided tours of the Little Bit facility are available immediately following the showcase. Reservations are not required.

The Little Bit mission is to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children and adults with disabilities through equine assisted therapies and activities, and to be an inspiration and educational resource to the therapeutic riding profession, both regionally and nationally. Founded in 1976, Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center moved to 17-acre Dunmire Stables in 2013.
