You don’t have to travel to Rio to get a taste of this year’s summer Olympics. From swimming and diving to beach volleyball and soccer, summer sports rule supreme in the land of sun and surf. Now get out there and celebrate the summer Olympics (and all thing Rio) the LA way.


If you've got a young horse lover, the Los Angeles Equestrian Center is your best bet for watching and learning everything you need to know about horse competitions during the 2016 Olympics—from training athletes (and horses) to proper care of animals and gear. Check their website for the next show.
