The Menlo Charity Horse Show, a 501 (c) (3) organization, began in 1970 as a one-day horse show and has become a 6-day event for the finest professional and amateur riders across the country and the world. Recognized in 2012 as a Heritage Horse Show, the Menlo Charity Horse Show is an AA rated hunter jumper competition. A five time recipient of the NorCal Horse Show of the Year Award, Menlo has been nationally recognized as one of the top horse shows in North America.
The Menlo Charity Horse Show is unique in that it has philanthropic origins and serves those in need. This year the show supports the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (Vista), which was founded in 1936 and is the premier resource for individuals with vision loss in San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties of CA. Vista Center helps clients reach their highest potential through programs that promote independence and improve quality of life.
Noble Tomorrow- Noble Outfitters’ give back program, supported Menlo, the athletes and Vista at this years show through numerous efforts. They provided every competitor and sponsor with a free pair of XtremeSoft Boot Socks. The XtremeSoft Boot Socks have been engineered specifically for riding, with ankle shield padded protection built in to eliminate boot pinch points; it’s a perfect example of the innovation and technology that Noble Outfitters incorporates into every one of their products.
Noble Outfitters was also proud to sponsor two charity dinners at this year’s show. The Exhibitor’s Dinner and Reception on opening night was personally prepared and served by Noble Outfitters CEO, Dan Costa, and his staff. Costa and crew also hosted the BBQ on Wednesday night for Menlo’s Family Night on the field. Competitors of all ages enjoyed the casual tri-tip sandwich dinner while they watched the $2,000 1.2m Windy Hill Larry Mayfield Horse and Hound Class.
Sponsoring event dinners is just one of the ways that the Noble Tomorrow program gives back to the equestrian community. Noble Outfitters commits 5% of profits to equestrian focused youth programs that foster equine interest and participation while strengthening values and providing meaningful learning experiences. They are devoted to encouraging the next generation of riders in all disciplines.
