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.
