Free Horse Fair in Portola Valley on May 11


By Kate Daly | Special to The Almanac

Horse lovers are in luck on Saturday, May 11, when the sixth annual Horse Fair comes to Portola Valley Town Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Free activities range from carriage rides, pony rides, face painting and roping, to a petting zoo and a veterinarian fielding questions.

Local vaulters will put a demonstration, and members of Portola Valley Pony Club and 4-H, and adult equestrians will share their knowledge about riding and caring for horses in the area.

Horse-related raffle items will be given away periodically, including trail rides in Wunderlich County Park.

A food truck will be selling food and drinks.

Sponsored by the Portola Valley Trails & Paths Committee, the event will take place at 765 Portola Road.
