Cliffie Stone Equestrian Trail
L to R: Wesley Tuttle, Leo Carrillo and Cliffie. Cliffie enjoyed talking with interesting people and he’s having a great time interviewing Leo Carrillo on his Radio-Rodeo show. Background info: Leo Carrillo is part of an old and respected Los Angeles family; his roots were traced back to the conquistadores. His great-grandfather, Carlos Antonio Carillo, was the first provisional governor of California. His father was the first mayor of Santa Monica. Since he had a gift for mimicry and dialect, many of his friends encouraged him to enter show business, which he did. He appeared in more than 90 Hollywood films as a supporting actor. He is best remembered as Pancho, the Cisco Kid’s sidekick in the popular TV western series, “The Cisco Kid.” He was also a preservationist and conservationist: he served on the California Beach and Parks Commission for 18 years and played a key role in the state's acquisition of Hearst Castle at San Simeon, the Los Angeles Arboretum, and the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. As a result of his service to the State, the Leo Carrillo State Park was named in his honor as well as the Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu. The Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park in Carlsbad, California is a registered California Historical Site.
