SGV Connect 5 – Horse Riding in the San Gabriel Valley

Horse Report SGV Connect

This week, Brian Velez talks to a pair of equestrians in the San Gabriel Valley about their experiences, challenges and all of the reasons to choose riding a horse as their preferred form of transportation.

The first interview is with Alejandra from Avocado Heights. A horse owner, Alejandra tells stories and outlines the costs of owning, caring for and riding a horse both in terms of money and time.

The second interview is with Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy Hector Beltran. Deputy Beltran tells stories from his time as a horse owner, including a sad tale of a horse’s death after being spooked by a driver. He also explains some of the rules and regulations for owners and riders in L.A. County.

SGV Connect is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
