The Louisiana Equine Council (LEC) according to its website, "Is an organization established to create a unified voice for all breeds and disciplines, to address industry issues, and to provide for the growth and development of the entire Louisiana equine industry."
Horseback riding is just one of the many agritourism ventures included in the Louisiana Agritourism Limited Liability Legislation passed in 2008. Earlier today, I talked with Maurice Tyne, a member of the LEC.
Maurice and LEC have been working with the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism to locate places where equestrians can ride, stable and overnight on trail rides.
Anyone with horses and interested in agritourism should visit the LEC website and learn more about their activities. A complete listing of members is attached to the website; call someone in your area and find out more.
