MENIFEE, Calif. (AP) - Leaders of a Southern California city agree: A park allowing dogs and horses is a bad idea.

The horse and dog park proposal was hatched during a June 14 planning retreat attended by leaders of Menifee, a southwest Riverside County community east of Lake Elsinore. The aim was to make the town more equestrian friendly.

But the proposal was scrapped by the City Council on Tuesday. They will now look into building separate parks for horses and dogs.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise ( says resident Rick Croy told the council horses and dogs don't get along and city researchers discovered the combination of a horse and dog park had failed elsewhere.

In Cherry Creek State Park in Colorado's Arapahoe County, for instance, dogs chased horses spooked by the barking canines.
