The Whittier Narrows Recreation Area is the epicenter of horse-related activities in this part of town, with a vibrant equestrian community that includes many different types of riding backgrounds. The San Gabriel River is the more traditional north-south horse route, but there are sprawling trails from the Equestrian Center west to the Rio Hondo area.
