(CHAPS) Community Horse Advocacy Program
The CHAPS believe that horses and the disappearing natural world in which they thrive are necessary for healthy communities. Historically, horses have been essential to life in the United States for transportation, work and pleasure. In San Mateo County, examples of this heritage are found at Folger Stable, The Woodside Store and Jack Brook Horse Camp. The CHAPS seek to honor this legacy by continuing to maintain, develop and encourage equestrian facilities and activities in the County. This includes the preservation of horse habitats and trail systems to provide both opportunities and environments conducive to the enjoyment of horses for horse owners and the public at large.
The CHAPS is a not for profit organization that works in collaboration with the County of San Mateo, Mid Peninsula Regional Open Space, the National Park Service, public agencies and other non-profits to support and promote horse activities in San Mateo County. This includes:
- Fundraising to facilitate and promote successful operations, programs, facilities, trail development and improvements for horse related activities.
- Provision of expertise for managed and safe environments for the public and horses.
- Creating an environment that educates and reinforces the historic and ongoing contribution of horses for work and recreation.
CHAPS is actively fundraising for several important projects.
