L.A. River Excursion: Burbank East Bank, Rancho Equestrian District
Driving along Riverside Drive to avoid the 134 Freeway, you've probably seen a horse or two on the side of the road - it's a fairly common sight in Burbank's Rancho Equestrian District. Stretched out alongside the Los Angeles River, this large equine community includes the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, which boards and trains over 400 horses. And here the Burbank Western Channel connects to the Los Angeles River.
Down Mariposa Street off of Riverside sits Circle K, a stable right next to the river, where one can rent a horse or take lessons. Several trails break out from here, including one that extends to miles of riding through Griffith Park. If you choose to walk along the river, you'll see the backside of the equestrian center where riders are often training. Be careful though, the same path is frequented by horses. As you connect back to Riverside Drive and walk along the road, it's quite evident by the crossing signs, the feed store, and the large rancho style homes: this is a horse town.

Fifteen more deaths from coronavirus were reported today in Los Angeles County, raising the total to 147, while the overall number of cases went up by 420 as the county entered what officials expect to be one of the worst weeks in terms of virus spread.
