What are you looking forward to most this year?
“Seeing old friends and talking about old times. I’m glad that the pandemic is over, of course. I’m excited to see everyone again this year, like John French and all of the wonderful people that Menlo brings in. It really is the people that keep me coming back every year.”
How much has the show contributed to Vista over the years?
“Millions of dollars. We started our relationship with the charity in 1973 and have been partners ever since. It's truly a beautiful marriage between the Menlo Charity Horse Show and the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired."
What makes Menlo so special?
"Menlo is one of the few horse shows that is not only a Heritage Competition, but also continues to maintain its legacy in philanthropy. It is really something special."
What is one of your favorite memories from Menlo?
"I get to work with so many volunteers from the Circus Club and that is always a highlight for me. Between 70 and 100 volunteers attend and they're different each year."
On behalf of the Menlo Charity Horse Show, there are no words to properly thank Betsy for all she has done throughout the years. We are looking forward to celebrating 50 years of philanthropy alongside Betsy and all those that make the event so special August 9-14th, 2022.
