Artists, neighbors, and riders celebrated the beauty of horses and their contribution to the unique Woodside area and its surrounding communities during three days and three events of the newly expanded Woodside Day of the Horse.

The evening of Friday, October 11, saw hundreds of horse lovers, art lovers, and neighbors turn out for the Opening Reception and First Annual Art of the Horse exhibition. On Saturday, October 12, riders dressed in “Super Heroines and Heroes” theme costumes to ride the unique Town of Woodside public trails. Sunday, October 13’s Family Fun Horse Fair drew more than a thousand visitors from surrounding communities to enjoy pony rides, wagon rides, and interactive equine learning experiences.

Woodside Day of the Horse is made possible by a public-private partnership of Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA!), The Town of Woodside, Woodside Community Foundation, and the generous support of sponsors and volunteers.
