Walking distance to Disney, Warner Brothers, and NBC, Burbank Rancho is a horse community just north of downtown LA and north of Griffith Park. It 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 their horse properties which were built in the 1940s and 50s, though many are now remodeled.
This town, officially crowned a "Horse Town," is just 12 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and has a population of 103,340 at the 2010 census.
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.
Equestrian Amenities • 54 Miles of Riding Trails adjacent to the community in Griffith Park, 4,800 acres. • Los Angeles Equestrian Center, (picture below) adjacent to this popular area offers up-scale horse facilities, box stalls, large arenas, trainers, first class events. • Ride or Walk to the Movie Studios
Other Amenities • Less than 1,00 homes in the Burbank/Glendale Rancho • 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 (is 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 property lots run from 6,750 to about 9,000. You can have as many as 2 horses on a 6,750 sq. ft. lot.
Local Waste Management picks up your horse droppings weekly.
"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."
NOTE: Back in the olden days, horses were outfitted for Halloween — some became "camels," and riders in Robin Hood attire would drape steeds in swags. Present time owners enter their horses in an annual Easter-bonnet contest.
