Rancho $$$ to $$$$|
Just north of downtown LA and north of Griffith Park, is probably the most unique area in all of Los Angeles.
This Horse Community has an average home size between 1,200-1,400 square feet, many of which were
built in the 1940s and 50s. There are less than 900 homes in the Burbank/Glendale Rancho and they are all zoned to
allow horses on the property. This is a Horse Community with a hometown feel that is determined not to become
another L.A. city.
Here horses live in tiny stables where owners saunter on horseback through the
residential streets and onto the Griffith Park trails each day. Because of its proximity to Griffith Park as well
as the Los Angeles Equestrian Center (one of the 2 largest in the USA and hosts such worldly events as The World
Cup Dressage) as well as several movie studios - which used to board horses back in the halcyon days of the western
- the Rancho is one of the few areas near urban Los Angeles where your horses can live in your back yard.
The horse trails are located only a few blocks from every home. When you cross the swinging bridge you enter the
4,800 acre Griffith Park; this is the largest park in any American city. There are 54 miles of horse trails and
some of the best riding in all of Southern California.
