This was the site of Pitt Arena, which featured equestrian events during the 1930s and 1940s. Owned by Babe and Claude Pitt, the arena showcased the horsemanship of the El Sobrante Horsemen's Association, San Pablo Horsemen's Association, Western Riders Club, and El Sobrante Junior Riders, among others. El Sobrante is still home to many horse lovers and owners. The Pitt Way private road keeps the Pitt Arena memory alive.
