Brevard Equestrian Center

The home of Ubilee II and Lisa Smit
(USDF Gold Medalist)

Brevard Equestrian Center was founded in 1996 by Lisa Smit to foster healthy relationships between horses and their people.  In 2003, BEC moved to its current location in Grant, FL.  The facility is situated on approximately 36 acres adjacent to the Indian River where Atlantic breezes keep the horses and riders comfortable year round.

We are located close to the Ocala, Orlando and Wellington competition circuits and have ample hotel and restaurants options within 5-10 miles for our out-of-town clients.

BEC offers full boarding, training, paddock & pasture turnouts and lessons.  We pride ourselves on the community we have created here, the happiness and health of our horses, and the ability of our riders.

Lisa Smit

As the owner and head trainer (and farm manager and clinic organizer and show manager, etc) at Brevard Equestrian Center there is never a dull moment.  Lisa has over 25 years experience, is an accomplished rider, and has competed through Grand Prix level dressage, earning her Bronze, Silver, and Gold United States Dressage Federation medals.

Lisa currently has a few talented youngsters she’s bringing along including her own, Ubilee II, a Dutch bred horse by Opus.  Ubilee is a very sensitive guy and is very tuned in to Lisa when they work or ride for a hack. He is showing and competing successfully at Grand Prix this season, and has already qualified for Regionals. Ubilee is really coming into his own after diligent work by Lisa with the help of her mentors and trainers, Marius Schriener, Michael Poulin, Sharon Poulin, and Paula Kierkegard.

Lisa has ridden open jumpers, has qualified for the equitation medal finals, and has competed through Training Level eventing. She has several hunter, jumper, and equitation prospects that she is bringing along as well.

Lisa is available for clinics and lessons locally, and nationally.

Please contact for schedule.

The BEC Team!


Rebekah has been riding with Lisa Smit for the past 16 years, since she was 5.
She and her horse Lightning continue to train in dressage at BEC and
has also ridden with renown Spanish Riding School instructors and Sharon Poulin in
clinics held at BEC. She followed Lisa Smit to BEC when it was founded.
She currently give riding lessons to both children and adults.
She also instructs on proper grooming and general care of horses.
When she is not at BEC she is a college student.
She enjoys hanging out with her family and loving on her two cats.



Amanda began riding hunters with Robert Hammond in 1999 at North Hammock Stables. She started taking dressage lessons, after a long break out of the saddle, while living in Interior Alaska. She also worked with Pat Hellman, hunter/jumper trainer, on Merritt Island for 3 years. She came to BEC after relocating back to her hometown of Melbourne, FL with her family. She began taking lessons with her daughter at BEC and the rest is history. At BEC, her responsibilities include assisting the barn manager with horse care and teaching beginner lessons. When she is not at the barn she enjoys soap making, refinishing furniture, and naps.



Bry was raised on a large reigning horse ranch run by her father in the mountains of Colorado. Her family all pitched in with the running of the barn, grooming and training the horses. She was introduced to BEC kinda by accident by a friend who brought her to BEC to try and connect her with a little piece of home in FL. Not long after her first visit, the opportunity presented itself to become the barn manager. Currently, she manages all aspects of barn care. Her goal here at BEC is to create a positive, peaceful, clean, and organized environment for people to come to and enjoy the beautiful horses we have on property. Bry loves sharing her BEC experience with her 5yo daughter who is learning to ride on
Tater Tot, one of BEC’s beginner ponies. When Bry is not managing BEC she LOVES to dance, cook, travel and crochet.



Morgan starting riding when she was 8 year old. Before coming to BEC she worked at an barn in Houston where they offered both English and Western riding disciplines. She found BEC when living with her mother in Palm Bay and looking for the ideal equestrian facility to work and ride. At BEC, her responsibilities include general horse care, stall maintenance, feeding and exercising the horses. When she is not having fun with horses at BEC, Morgan loves playing basketball and listening to music!



Caitlyn has been riding and competing for fourteen years since the age of 2. Her disciplines include Hunt seat, Saddle seat, Western, Jumping, Cow working, and Barrel racing. She has competed on are Arabians/Arabian-Saddlebred crosses, QH, Paints, and Foxtrotters. She won numerous world championships and world grand championships in the versatility and ranch horse competitions. She was fortunate enough to have lived for a Winter at BEC and find the opportunity to come teach for Lisa at BEC. At BEC, she focuses on helping riders develop a solid horsemanship foundation. The focus is on learning to ride with an independent seat and acquiring the physical and mental skills necessary to help control their horse or pony and help prepare them for their future goals.



Mariah has been riding on and off for 8 years. Her training includes for hunters and dressage. She learned about BEC from a friend and decided to pay a visit. She was hooked from day 1. Her responsibilities include grooming for Lisa Smit when she is training and administering horse first aid.
Something most don’t know about Mariah is that she was a professionally trained ballerina as a teenager!
