$10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award- accepting applicants

The Mounted Patrol Foundation and the Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA!) are pleased to announce a new scholarship, the $10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award, jointly sponsored by the two organizations for a local high school senior with a demonstrated involvement in equestrian activities as well as academic achievement and community service. 

Both the Mounted Patrol Foundation and WHOA! share a deep interest in the next generation of equestrians, as well as a commitment to helping them achieve worthwhile goals, through each organizations’ ongoing activities and now through their joint sponsorship of the new $10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award. 

Application deadline is April 10, 2020, at 3:00 pm, and incomplete applications will not be considered.

Eligible applicants are seniors who attend high schools in San Mateo, Santa Clara, and San Francisco Counties, and who have been accepted to and plan to attend a college, university or other continuing education program this fall. The $10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award will be paid directly to the recipient’s college, university or continuing education program in support of the recipient’s tuition, fees, room and/or board. 

 Selection criteria include demonstrated equestrian involvement, academic achievement, and community service. Financial need will be taken into consideration in the selection of the scholarship recipient. Finalists will be required to provide transcripts showing their GPA.

The scholarship will be awarded by May 29, 2020. 

Information is also available in the GRANTS and AWARDS section of the WHOA! website.

Thank you to the many generous supporters of this year’s 15th Annual Woodside Day of the Horse

Thank you to the many generous supporters who made this year’s 15thAnnual Woodside Day of the Horse events such a tremendous success. Our appreciation for their generosity is exceeded only by our gratitude for their partnership in sharing the difference that horses make in our lives with neighbors both nearby and in our surrounding communities.

As a result of this year’s Woodside Day of the Horse events, hundreds of equestrians and neighbors enjoyed the horse’s beauty and variety at the First Annual Art of the Horse exhibition. Hundreds more saw riders costumed as “Super Heroines and Heroes” ride the Town of Woodside public trails. And more than 1,500 family members from surrounding communities were introduced to horses at the Family Fun Horse Fair, a positive first step toward understanding the role of horses and the rural lifestyle here in the midst of Silicon Valley.

Thank you to our Grande Champion Sponsors who generously supported WHOA! (Woodside-area Horse Owners Association):
