O.K. we knew it was there. The sign on the freeways says: Equestrian Center
It's about 15 minutes from our house, adjacent to Griffith Park
On the other side of it is Burbank.
(Where a lot of TV shows and movies that you have known and loved, have been and still are, shot.)
For $25 an hour, you can rent yourself a ride.
Or learn how to rope a poor sweet little white baby mule.
I have many family members who have loved, ridden and owned horses.
But me? More of a cat and dog person so far.
(Frankly, those big horses scare the c#$% out of me.)
But since I've discovered this slice of Hollywood cowboy history right at my back doorstep, I'm more open to being befriended and persuaded........
By someone who has soft eyelashes and a blonde mane. I'd feed him carrots (and call him "Lance", or "Trigger", or maybe "Stoney") - he'd like that.....
and we'd ride off together into the sunset - the breeze in our hair and the smell of sun and hay in our nostrils. Yippee Ti Yi Ohhhhh....... Don't you think I should try it?
