The nonprofit Menlo Charity Horse Show was begun in 1970 as a philanthropic organization, and it has continued its original mission for nearly a half-century.
In recent years, the event's proceeds have benefited the Palo Alto-based nonprofit Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, which served more than 3,700 clients in San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties last year, according to the organization.
The horse show over the years has raised more than $6 million for the Vista Center, according to the Menlo Charity Horse Show website.
