L.A. Day of the Horse

From Horsetrader staff reports - November 7th, 2013 - Show & Event News

Los Angeles celebrated the Day of the Horse on Oct. 2, and the city put horses front and center at City Hall. The Los Angeles Equine Advisory Committee (LAEAC), created by City Council, with the help from Councilman Tom LaBonge, advises Los Angeles City Council on equestrian issues.

The LAEAC is working with the City’s Planning Department to preserve endangered agricultural and horse keeping areas within the City of Los Angeles. With L.A. City and L.A. Recreation and Parks support, the LAEAC erected two pipe corrals provided by East Valley Feed & Tack and placed horses in them on the South Lawn of City Hall. The LAEAC members put the corrals in place and removed them later in the morning to highlight the speed of installing “pipe corrals” for horse keeping. City Planning regards pipe corrals as permanent structures requiring the same building permits as needed for a barn.

The City Council and the public was invited to view these corrals and horses before the Council met for the Day of the Horse Event. It was a memorable way to bring an issue to L.A. City Council’s attention.
