horse_06.jpgWoodside owes its very existence and appeal to horses. Horsepower built Woodside, horse people have enriched it, horse trails have enhanced it, and horse properties have protected it from development. As a result, Woodside’s open lands and rustic charm are as coveted as rare gems in the congested San Francisco Bay Area. This valuable asset needs diligent protection. Recognizing its debt to the horse, the value of its ranching history, the resulting attraction of its rural nature and ensuing economic benefits, Woodside actively protects its equestrian legacy and trail system through legislation, volunteerism, and its General Plan.


The Woodside-area Horse Owners’ Association (Horse-shoeS.jpg) works on its own and with other organizations to protect and celebrate the local and regional heritage of the horse. We focus our efforts in the following areas:


  • Trails Preservation
  • Horse Habitat Preservation
  • Special Events - The Day of the Horse
  • Back in the Saddle
  • Born Again Barns
