For 40 years, Atherton’s Betsy Glikbarg has coordinated Menlo Charity Horse Show By Jane Knoerle

Suzanne Rischman, Wendy Harries, and Linda Salvador. Each takes a different segment of duties. “My segment has always been (getting) sponsors,” says Ms. Glikbarg. “I start begging in January.” This year the show has 92 sponsors, the most ever. “I’m the organizer, but once the show starts, I’m the cheerleader,” says Ms. Glikbarg. She will be there every morning and on hand for the evening festivities. One event she doesn’t want to miss is hearing her daughter, Ellen Shea, sing the national anthem at the beginning of the ceremonies. Does Betsy Glikbarg see heading the horse show committee until, say, its 50th anniversary? “I will never leave the show,” she says, “but I will continue to delegate.”

Almanac Lifestyles Editor


his is a big year for Betsy Glikbarg of Atherton. It marks her 40th year as coordinator of the Menlo Charity Horse Show. It is also the 50th wedding anniversary of her and her husband, Tom. A reception honoring Ms. Glikbarg for her years of community service will be held 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 8, at the home of Susan and Gary Martin in Woodside. A modest woman, Ms. Glikbarg only agreed to the party when she was told it would be a benefit. Betsy Glikbarg has ridden all her life, but has never shown horses, except as a youngster at camp. However, starting with a little family one-day event 40 years ago, she has steered the Menlo Charity Horse Show to its present six-day format, which has raised millions of dollars for the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The horse show takes place from Tuesday, Aug. 10, through Sunday, Aug. 15, at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.


The early years

Betsy Glikbarg grew up in San Francisco and attended San Jose State University. As young marrieds, Tom and Betsy Glikbarg moved to Atherton 45 years ago. Betsy became a “career volunteer,” while raising three children. (Today, the children — Ellen, John and Bob — are grown and she is lucky enough to have eight grandchildren living nearby.) After moving to Atherton, she kept a horse in her backyard. “I used to ride my horse over to the Circus Club and ride with Lois Spreckels. One day Lois said: ‘I want to put on a little horse show at the club. Will you help me?’” The reason for the one-day

show was to raise money for a new roof for the Circus Club horse barn. That first show was so successful that it expanded to two days the following year. On the third year, Ms. Spreckels announced she was going to New York “on a little vacation.” Ms. Glikbarg was on her own. Early on, Ms. Glikbarg asked for help from a few friends: Nan Chapman (a friend since childhood), Nancy Parker, Nancy Robinson, and Jane Yates (all of whom still actively participate). The horse show committee now

numbers 150 members. Through the years, the horse show has evolved from its original format into the current six-day “AA” show, the highest designated rating possible. It has been named “Best in the West” by members of the Pacific Coast Hunter/Jumper Association for more than 15 years. “When something happens gradually, you don’t give it a thought,” says Ms. Glikbarg. She credits her years in the Junior League of Palo Alto/Midpeninsula for giving her the organiza-

tional skills to chair the show. “They taught me so much,” she says. Betsy Glikbarg sees her job as an administrator. The show has always had a professional horse show manager, Walter T. Haub of San Francisco. Five years ago, she stood up at a horse show meeting and said: “I’m getting older and getting tired. I need help.” Five people stepped up to the plate to offer their help. These co-chairs are: Steve Goldenberg, Suzanne Jain,

Menlo Charity Horse Show opens Aug. 10 While many horse shows are seeing fewer entries, due to the economy, that’s not the case for the Menlo Charity Horse Show, which runs Aug. 10 to 15 at the Menlo Circus Club in Atherton. This year’s show has 100 more riders and horses signed up than last year, according to show spokesman Nan Chapman. Equestrians seem eager to take part in the top-rated show, which is celebrating its 40th year. Over the years, the show has received many accolades. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, subscribers to named it “one of the best horse shows in North America.� For more than 15 years, members of the Pacific Coast Hunter/Jumper Association have ranked it “Best in the West.� Focusing on hunters and jumpers competing in Olympic-style open-field jumping in three on-going arenas, the show has raised millions for the Vista Center for the

Blind and Visually Impaired, including $440,000 in 2009. In recognition of the show’s 40 years, local retailers have hosted events. The Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park was the setting for a reception in June for sponsors and friends of the show. Michael Kors at Stanford Shopping Center will be the venue for a final kick-off party on Monday, Aug. 9. The Four Seasons Hotel, East Palo Alto, will host an exhibitors’ dinner on Aug. 12. The Windy Hill Larry Mayfield memorial ride and drive class, scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11, is a new event this year. Other highlights of the show are the $10,000 Rector Audi/Ryman memorial speed jumping class, which begins at 6 p.m. Friday evening and the $40,000 Grand Prix at 6 p.m. Saturday night. The crowdpleasing children’s (under 6) lead line class takes place around 1 p.m. Saturday in the

sand area. A gala dinner-dance and live and silent auctions are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 13, in the clubhouse. Among the items to be auctioned is an original collage created by the show’s official artist, Sam Price of San Francisco. Titled “Jubilee,� the art is valued at $5,000. Tickets to the gala are $225 per person. Complimentary valet parking will be provided. For reservations, call Pam Perez at 857-0422. Food and beverages will be available on the club grounds and the club house and coffee shop will be open to the public during the horse show. Hours for the show are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The Circus Club is located at 190 Park Lane in Atherton. Tickets are $10 per day, or $35 for a six-day pass. Children under 12 and seniors over 65 are admitted free. Go to or call 701-0543 for more information.

‘Movie under Stars’ in Portola Valley The Portola Valley Cultural Arts Committee is inviting the community to watch a free movie “under the stars� on Friday, Aug. 20, at the courtyard lawn of the Portola Valley Town Center. “This event will be the first of its kind at the new town center,� said Deirdre Clark, co-chair of the committee. The movie, “Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl,� will be shown at 8 p.m.. Popcorn, sandwiches, nonalcoholic drinks and treats will be sold, she said. “Folks are encouraged to come at 6:30 to picnic, socialize and listen to music featuring CDs from local bands,� she said in an announcement. “We welcome your family and friends. Bring blankets and a picnic. All ages are welcome. Unfortunately, please leave your dogs at home.�

‘Supersize Me’ The Little House Activity Center in Menlo Park will have a free showing of the film, “Supersize Me,� at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3 in the Garden Room, Margaret Petitjean, a spokesperson for Little House, has announced. The film shows the dire effects


of the fast-food diet. Little House is at 800 Middle Ave. behind Nealon Park. “All our welcome,� she said. “It’s a must viewing for living healthy longer. Visit and pick up a program of Little House activities.�

Teens offer to pick fruits, vegetables As fall approaches, homegrown fruits and vegetables are sure to be in abundance. The Portola Valley Teen Committee is looking for people with excess fresh fruits and vegetables in their gardens and lots that might otherwise go to waste. The teens are offering to pick the fruits and vegetables and transport them to organizations that feed the needy, such as Second Harvest Food Bank in San Carlos. This new effort, called Sharing the Bounty, has the added benefit of keeping gardens and lots clean from fallen, rotting fruits, notes project spokesperson Sharon Driscoll. Contact her at sdriscoll@savoca. com if you are willing to donate fruits and/or vegetables, or know someone who may be.

Woodside: Architect joins architecture review board By Dave Boyce Almanac Staff Writer


he Woodside Town Council, in a unanimous vote, appointed resident and architect Thalia Lubin to the town’s Architecture and Site Review Board at the council’s July 27 meeting. Ms. Lubin takes the now-empty seat of Glenn Atkinson, who resigned recently. Her term ends in February 2011. “She is an architect and the (ASRB) charter calls for there to be an architect� on the sevenmember board, Councilwoman Anne Kasten said after the council’s interview of Ms. Lubin. Councilwoman Sue Boynton added that, “as an architect, I think she’ll be able to realize or visualize what the applicant is trying to achieve. I think that’s a very important component (of the process).� Bringing construction and design plans to the ASRB for review is a required step for new homes and major remodeling projects before they go on to the Planning Commission. Ms. Lubin told the council that she has been involved as an architect in at least 10 projects that went before the

ASRB. She is also on the town’s History Committee and is participating in this year’s task force Thalia Lubin of volunteers and staff who are reviewing the town’s general plan, according to her application for the ASRB post. “I feel I would be a valuable addition to the board,� Ms. Lubin said in her application. “Having represented clients before the ASRB, I have an understanding of the process. I love Woodside and want to help ensure that it remains the special place that it is!� Ms. Lubin lobbied persistently and prominently for the preservation of the Jackling house, a Jazz Age country home on Mountain Home Road now owned by Apple Corp. chief executive Steve Jobs and originally designed by noted architect George Washington Smith. After years in court battles, the path is apparently now clear for Mr. Jobs to have the house divested of historically significant parts, dismantled and replaced with a modern home.
