Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Public Service
Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge (BREC) provides parks and recreational opportunities for all citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish.
BREC's Farr Park Equestrian Center offers not only basic riding and horsemanship skills through our camps and clinics but also offers activities such as the Hearts and Hooves Therapeutic Riding Program which provides equine-oriented activities for the purpose of contributing to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people.
Hearts And Hooves Therapeutic Riding ProgramPeople of all ages with a variety of disabilities discover new worlds through equine-assisted activities. Because horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves riders' bodies in a manner similar to the human step, individuals with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.
