In 1922, these unidentified Atherton girls enjoyed riding and grooming their ponies around their Fair Oak neighborhood. It was girls of this age who are credited with asking resident Eleanor Weir if they could use the Weir's field to stage a circus with their ponies and charge admission. The event raised $500 and grew into the Tally Ho horse show, which was formerly staged every year at the Menlo Circus Club.
