A day for horses in WoodsideA progressive trail ride expected to draw more than 300 costumed riders will be one of the highlights of Woodside's sixth annual "Day of the Horse" on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The free horse fair's activities will be centered at and around Woodside Town Hall. The Wells Fargo Stagecoach will be giving rides and there will be horse-themed crafts and blacksmith demonstrations. Children's activities will include a petting zoo, pony rides, and having their picture taken astride a pony.
Representatives from many of the area's riding programs will be on hand with information, including "Back in the Saddle," a program for adults who haven't ridden since their youth and want to ride again.
Riders in the progressive trail ride will wear costumes representing different holidays, such as Halloween and Valentine's Day. Pre-registration is required for all riders.
"The Day of the Horse" is sponsored by the Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA), a local group dedicated to preserving Woodside's rural ambience and promoting equestrian activities.
Woodside Town Hall is located at 2955 Woodside Road, at Whiskey Hill Road. For more information, call Donna Poy, 380-6408.
