Brevard Equestrian Center

Brevard Equestrian Center was established in Grant, FL in 2003. 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. Top quality care is our primary focus, as well as our friendly and helpful staff.
BEC focuses on the healthy development of rider and horses as teams, emphasizes teaching safe and classical riding at all ages, and offers a broad range of education opportunities from clinics, working student positions, riding demonstrations, and educational programs for younger riders.
