Icelandic ponies and miniature horses will visit Portola Valley on Sunday, June 14, for the annual Celebration of the Horse fair. A trail ride is set for the day before.
The fair runs from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Town Center at 765 Portola Road. There will be children's activities and carriage rides around Town Center, according to the fair's sponsor, the Portola Valley Trails & Paths Committee.
Children can have their faces painted, listen to a horse's heartbeat, enjoy a petting zoo and practice roping.
There will be tables with information on local organizations, including the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District.
The Portola Valley Trails & Paths Committee is inviting riders with their own horses to invite friends who have horses for a ride from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 13. Staging for this ride takes place at 9 a.m. in the meadow next to Spring Down Equestrian Center at 725 Portola Road, just south of Town Center.
