City Person's LA County Horse Dream

In Burbank Rancho, just north of downtown LA and north of Griffith Park, is probably the most unique area of all of Los Angeles to horse around in with the average home size between 1,200-1,400 square feet, and many of which were built in the 1940s and 50s. 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. There are less than 900 homes in the Burbank/Glendale Rancho and they are all zoned to allow horses on the property.

• Hometown Feel

It's like a small town right in the middle of Los Angeles."

This is a community with a hometown feel that is determined not to become another L.A. city.  Here horses live 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.

Los Angeles Equestrian Center
The Los Angeles Equestrian Center is 75 acres large with a world-class horse show complex featuring many breeds and disciplines at 45 equestrian events a year, over 500 boarding stalls, 17 horse trainers, a tack shop and equestrian gift shop, food and beverage banquet facilities, and generally the hub of horse activities in Los Angeles.

Here in Burbank Rancho, property values are higher than most other areas of Burbank. This is because you can saddle up your horse in your own backyard and take a morning ride and still be at work at the studios, downtown, or on the West side for a late breakfast. It also gives plenty of opportunity to know one’s horsy neighbors, to walk your dog, jog or fly a kite in Pollywog Field, and to enjoy the precious open space that most other neighborhoods are envious of. Even for those who don't own horses, the sight of riders along Burbank's urban streets is a key element of the area's flavor.

Sample of homes/stables in Burbank Rancho


"Burbank is often seen as an oasis from L.A.," One resident has said, and Rancho Equestrian is a "micro-community" within that oasis, one that produces "very committed, very intelligent, very coordinated residents."

Another resident adds, "It doesn't feel like L.A. here, and we want to keep that way;" "it's the most down-to-earth, unpretentious, relaxed feel we have here. It's like a small town right in the middle of Los Angeles."
