This team was organized in the 1950's as a mounted Boy Scout group to perform in local rodeos and parades. They soon allowed girls on the team and became the Greenwell Springs Youth Riders.
This non-profit group has promoted horsemanship, teamwork and sense of value to hundreds of kids in the Baton Rouge area.
Each child is responsible for their own horse, tack and transportation to practices and performances. You can see them in rodeos and parades decked out in the original uniform of red and white.
