Throughout its history, Oakland has been a haven for horse enthusiasts. Clubs held frequent horse shows and social events, and riders were seen galloping along roads that led to the beautiful trails of Joaquin Miller, Redwood, and Anthony Chabot Parks. United by a shared passion, traditional cowboys and cowgirls continue to ride alongside English-style riders at the remaining local stables. Capture a glimpse into Oakland's rich equestrian history during the hayday of horses.
