Dear Members,

We are truly grateful for each and every one of you, and we want to recognize you. We can’t wait until the time is right to come together as a community in celebration! In light of current public health considerations, however, we must cancel our Annual Members’ Party.

In lieu of our traditional in-person event, we are excited to announce a special giveaway this year. We are offering a chance to win FREE ANNUAL MEMBERSHIPS! You read that right. A couple lucky people are going to have their 2020 membership renewed for free for 2021. (This includes any type of membership: Full-Use, Dog Walking, Pay-As-You-Go Day Use, Farm or Trainer, etc.).

The submission is simple. Here’s how it works: fill out this short form which includes a video submission (<1 minute—just grab your phone!) answering the following question: "What has The Horse Park meant to you and/or your animals in 2020?" (Cameos by your four-legged loved ones are highly encouraged and may influence judging.)

Entries are due by Tuesday, November 10th at 5PM Pacific Time. We can’t wait to see your entries! Any questions? Call the office 650-851-2140—we'll be happy to assist.

Warm regards,

The Board of Governors

ABOUT THE HORSE PARK AT WOODSIDE - October 2020

 

The Horse Park, established in 1981, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to land preservation and equestrian sport. Our land stewardship includes: invasive weed eradication; erosion control; native grass and plant restoration; a conscientious mowing plan for perpetuation of native grasses, weed abatement and fire prevention; and a native garden. Our equestrian programs encompass all that a premier equestrian facility has to offer: an international level cross country course, state-of-the-art footing, a covered arena, and 8 additional arenas.

We are unique to California and the West Coast as we encompass over 270 beautiful acres in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area. The Horse Park is a wonderful refuge whether on foot or horseback, you can enjoy great vistas, the restorative power of nature and its simple beauty. In an effort to maintain this equine treasure, the Horse Park offers low cost memberships for both equine sports as well as for dog walking. Over the years it has been donations to our non-profit that have allowed this beautiful park to thrive. Everything we achieve, we do so because of generous individuals that share our vision and dedication to providing opportunities for educational, recreational and competitive activities in a variety of equestrian disciplines. We believe that The Horse Park at Woodside provides a balanced platform for the growth and development of youth and adults alike.
