San Diego Polo Hits the Desert for Opening Weekend- Are you IN?

Alright, San Diegans, you have waited long enough.  We have teamed up with the Eldorado Polo Club and Empire Polo Club to bring you a fabulous Opening Weekend in the desert!  Mark your calendars for January 6-8 and find out more details below.

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and lush green fields, the Indio, CA is a perfect winter polo destination.  The best part is, you’ll know these guys!  A lot of our members truck their horses and teams out to Indio for the season to participate in matches, and come back in late spring to play in San Diego.

If you are interested in participating in lessons, please see the lessons and prices marked in red and contact Lindsey for more details.
