Messages From The Co-Chairs


From Gretchen King…

"Warning! This person may spontaneously talk about horses at any given moment!" Could this be printed on a T-shirt that describes you? If so, you need to join-up with other like-minded horse people at a SMCHA event. We are all about learning more about our equine partners and having fun doing it! SMCHA provides experiences for you to better your horsemanship skills and deepen your partnership and understanding of your horse. We do this in various ways, such as by offering our famous Fall Riding Clinic for free, by hosting schooling shows that give you an opportunity to show your horse and obtain feedback on your ride directly from the judge; and by having fun & educational events that enable you to chat about horses with other folks who are equally interested! The only requirement for joining our organization is that you love horses (or love someone who loves horses). My challenge to you for 2018 is to learn or try something new this year with your horse.The more you know, the safer you are, and the more fun you will have. We'd love to have you! Come and Play with SMCHA!

From Bonnie Bertetta…

We are looking forward to a very fun and productive year. We have many events planned and a strong and energetic Board of Directors in place. We are thrilled with the donations received and hope you will continue to honor your loved ones, in memoriam, by donating to San Mateo County Horsemans Association. We are now a 501(c)(3) corporation, so all donations are tax deductible. We encourage you to volunteer on any of our committees and programs. We would love to share our love of SMCHA and introduce you to our many fine events. If you are interested in becoming a member or volunteering, please contact any of our Board members or check our website at
