Preservation of the Trails

Trail_preservation.jpgA major focus of Horse-shoeS.jpg is preservation of the equestrian trails within and connecting to the Woodside Trail System. This system, which also adjoins and includes the Portola Valley Trail System, is unique in the region. This system connects three county parks, (Huddart Park, Wunderlich Park, and Edgewood Park) and a number of Mid-Peninsula Open Space District (MROSD) open spaces. Additionaly, the Bay Area Ridge Trail and San Francisco Watershed can also be accessed by the Woodside Trail System.


The Huddart and Wunderlich Parks Master Plan took over two years to complete. WHOA! and other equestrian organizations spent countless hours sheparding this process and have applied major effort to educating the park management, consultants and staff about horses, of their needs and the impact of various activities on the use and safety of the trail system.


Horse-shoeS.jpg works with and supports other trails advocacy groups such as the Equestrian Trial Riders Action Committee (ETRAC). Visit their website at www.etrac.us



Save Horse Habitat

WHOA! as an advocacy group, works with other local and regional organizations to achieve common goals. WHOA! Members are involved in regional projects which are focused on preserving and supporting horse facilities, such as the Folger Stable and the Horse Park at Woodside.


Folger Barn Preservation

The historic Folger Estate Stable in Wunderlich Park has been fully renovated and future generations can enjoy its architecture and history tours, children programming, as well as horse boarding. 


This project was a recipient of proceeds raised by Woodside Day of the Horse 2006, 2007, and 2008.
