Why REC (Recreational Equestrian Coalition) Matters

Why REC (Recreational Equestrian Coalition) Matters

  By Subscriber/Contributor Ruth Gerson, President of REC   In keeping with our Mission Statement, REC (Recreational Equestrian Coalition) is actively involved in the community informing the public and policy makers about access to, and the use of, diverse recreational opportunities throughout Los Angeles County and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA). REC will protect and defend the region’s natural diversity and promote public/private partnerships to preserve and expand visitor-serving recreational facilities.           Following that mandate, we have a track record of ensuring that politicians listen to our perspective and hear our reasons for protecting and promoting equestrian uses and activities in LA County and the Santa Monica Mountains. When the California Coastal Commission (CCC) was trying to evict horses from any property with an oak tree, or when LA County tried to restrict equestrian uses in Triunfo/Lobo Canyon, or when early drafts of the North Area Plan threatened agricultural and equestrian uses, or when LA County and the CCC wanted to severely restrict the use of existing equestrian properties with outrageous requirements and obstacles — REC was there. REC was there negotiating for far better policies than what were originally offered. During the past several years in dealing with the CCC and LA County in finalizing the LCP for the Santa Monica Mountains Coastal Zone, REC obtained many important concessions for equestrians and will continue to fight to keep horses in these mountains. As we enter the new year of 2016, we must stay strong and resist any and all attempts to change policies in the North Area Plan. There should be more public/private partnerships in order to develop and expand visitor-serving recreational facilities in the SMMNRA. This is HORSE COUNTRY, and we want it to remain so without any more obstacles that prevent us from enjoying our chosen lifestyle.       By Ruth Gerson – President of...
