I have never been to a polo match. what can I expect?

Incredible action. One of the world’s oldest games is also one of the fastest. Balls can travel up to 110 mph. Horses gallop and cut at 30 mph. Player and horse work in partnership to get a ball through a goal, while using every possible strategy to prevent the opposing side from doing so. What happens on that quest is both brutish and beautiful.

Please refer to the Rules of the Game on the site. There will be Host / Emcee calling the Polo matches in real time so you can learn as you watch.

A highlight of the day! Guests can take the field during the second and final Polo match to help repair the field by flipping over the divots. Professionals will deal with the horse droppings.
