This is so exciting! A Polo Club coming to the Battenkill Valley! This is “Polo For The People”, where membership is free, games are more for fun than competition, spectators get in for twenty bucks a carload, and average folk like you and me can attend a Polo University and actually learn the game traditionally reserved for kings!
There’s a two-day introductory course, an 8-week group lesson course and private lessons are also available.
The first-ever match will take place Saturday, June 5, at 4pm, and then matches will take place every Saturday at 4pm thereafter (weather permitting). So pack your car with a cooler (no glass, no alcohol) and a pile of your more adventurous friends and come out and see a real Polo match! It’s right on Rt. 29 between Greenwich and Salem – you can’t miss it. They’ve done a beautiful job with the property and you’re guaranteed a fun afternoon, taking in the scenery, the majesty of the horses and the excitement of the game. Maybe you’ll be inspired to go the next step and attend the University.
And…here’s another thought. How about getting married there? The spot is so idyllic it makes a great – and unique – location for weddings and other special events.
