Los Altos Hills Horsemen's Association (LAHHA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping good horsemanship available in our community. Through a variety of events and a common interest in horses and equestrian activities, we strive to preserve and enhance the extensive horse friendly resources of our Town, which include the wonderful Pathways System and a Town Arena on Purissima Road. Our activities bring horse lovers together to share their knowledge, experience, and enjoyment of horses in our lives.
In its 1971 Articles of Incorporation, the purpose of the association was defined as "the promotion, sponsorship, and cultivaton of the use, ownership, and care of horses for horsemen in the Town of Los Altos Hills and neighboring communities." We proudly continue that mandate.
LAHHA members include people of all ages and walks of life whether they own horses or just enjoy knowing that horses are part of our community. What unites our membership is our passion and respect for horses and the common commitment for their continuing presence. We also share information that contributes to the welfare of these magnificent animals that grace our lives and the Hills.
Many of our members also belong and contribute to local and national organizations as part of our outreach program to horse-related clubs, trail riding groups, horse sanctuaries, and equine therapy programs. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our Town, as well.
Beyond planning and hosting PlayDays, Schooling Shows, and clinics, members gather for trail rides, near and far. Other activites include riding in the Los Altos Pet Parade, potluck dinners, workdays to spruce up the arena property, barbeques, an annual camping trip with the horses, barn tours, and holiday caroling.
