Eye on L.A. visits Chatsworth, a neighborhood with one of the most developed equestrian communities in the country for horseback riding, boarding and competing. We visit Steelgate Farms -- a luxurious stable for boarding horses -- and local businesses like Los Toros and The Cowboy Palace Saloon, which have corrals and hitching posts in front to accommodate their clientele.
Another great activity in Chatsworth is Tae Kwon Do. Kings Tae Kwon Do Center is run by a family of three champion black belts.
KIRK DOUGLAS PLAYGROUNDS
Legendary actor Kirk Douglas and his wife are no strangers to philanthropy. Over a decade ago, Anne Douglas read about the poor state of L.A. school playgrounds and decided she wanted to do something about it. Now, 11 years later, they have just finished refurbishing their 401st playground.
