Woodside Art of the Horse is pivoting to an all-online exhibition this year. As much as we wished to return to a live art show, the reality is that life is still being disrupted by Covid in many ways and the exhibition needs to remain online again for 2021.

Woodside Day of the Horse is a fun-filled celebration of the unique equestrian heritage of Woodside and the extraordinary contribution horses make to the quality of life throughout San Mateo County. It is made possible by a public-private partnership of Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA!), The Town of Woodside, Woodside Community Foundation, and the generous support of sponsors and volunteers. Proceeds are used to fund equestrian projects and programs throughout the Woodside and San Mateo County areas. This weekend of equestrian celebration attracts nearly 2,000 people to Woodside each year on the weekend of the second Saturday in October.
