Los Angeles Equestrian Center executives have told trainers that they might have to scale down their operations and move more than 400 horses out of the city-owned facility because of a contract squabble. Several trainers said Thursday that General Manager Kenneth Mowry warned them in a special meeting that the cutbacks might be necessary because the city has delayed approval of an amended contract that would reduce the center's rent by hundreds of thousands of dollars over a five-year period.

A Los Angeles City Council panel Monday balked at slashing the rent a Burbank company pays to operate the often-troubled equestrian center at Griffith Park. Councilman Joel Wachs and Councilwoman Rita Walters said they were "decidedly uncomfortable" with a proposal to revise the contract with LAEC Inc. recommended by the city's Recreation and Park Commission. The revised contract would save the firm $1.2 million over the first five years.
