You can tell that Old Agoura is a Horse Community
with this Reminder: Whoa Down!
Residents are asked to drive slowly and give Big Bertha
some room. Even going the speed-limit may be going too
fast for some horse folks. there is a bridle easement
and horses are pedestrians and they have the right of
way. So when residents see these signs, they are
reminded "Horses present, Please slow down"
originally as the Agourre Ranch, it later was
known as the Agoura Ranch. After William Randolph Hearst
purchased the property in the 1920's, it was known as
the Hearst Ranch. Hearst then leased the property to the
Russell family for cattle raising. In 1943, B.B.
Albertson purchased the 30,000 acre property from
Hearst. A portion of the Albertson Ranch was later
acquired by the State of California and is being
preserved for park land.
