ip the Menlo 5 dot 0 cocktail while enjoying the thrill of watching top equestrians compete for points, titles, and that oh-so-elusive jar of Jelly Belly jellybeans. The beauty and excitement on the polo field at the idyllic Menlo Circus Club in Atherton, California, are unrivaled. Visit the 50th anniversary celebration of the Menlo Charity Horse Show this summer, August 9th through the 14th. The Menlo Charity Horse Show began in 1970 as a one-day show and has grown to become a tradition of outstanding equine competition. The now six-day event was recognized in 2012 as a USEF Heritage Competition and and is designated as the USHJA World Champion Hunter Rider Competition.

The event benefits the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Founded in 1936, the center is the premier resource for individuals with vision loss. It helps clients reach their highest potential through programs that promote independence and improve their quality of life. CONTACT INFO | PAGE 94
