I have to admit that when I started this blog, I saw myself as somewhat of an LA expert. Having been raised here since I was seven years old and never feeling even the slightest desire to live anywhere else, I thought I had seen just about everything this city had to offer. One of the most pleasant perks of blogging so far has been finding out how completely wrong I was. Example A: I live about 5 minutes from Griffith Park, and I've never ridden the ponies.
Today I had the great pleasure of meeting Hank Bronk who has owned and managed the Griffith Park Pony Rides for over 50 years. Clearly, when it comes to being an LA expert, there's no way I can hold a candle to this guy. Hank was nice enough to show us around the facilities, share stories, and introduce us to some of his team of about 150 ponies. I took a special liking to the Shetlands, who looked like the cutest little ragamuffins as they're currently in the middle of shedding their thick winter coats. Unfortunately I'm over the 13 year old age limit to ride the ponies, but we'll definitely be back to visit our new friend Hank and to see these sweet little horses in action.
