Roseland Polo

Needs a location

Roseland Polo matches are free and open to the public. No reservations are required.
"Matches begin at 12:00 pm, and gates open at 10:00 am, every Sunday from Memorial Day weekend through mid-October, field and weather conditions permitting. Sunday mornings after 9:00 am the match status can be confirmed by visiting this page or checking our Facebook."
Their Website & additional info: https://kingfamilyvineyards.com/polo/
Tips: It's a very large field and there are lots of people set up with tents lining both sides of the field as well as the far end goal post. There is a winery tasting room with tables at one goal post end but I'm not sure if that requires a reservation or not.
I arrived ½ hour before the match started and found a "tailgate" spot at the far goal post directly in line with it and it turned out to be ideal. I used my hatch back for shade (a lot of sun), you may need cover.
Gear: I shot with a Sony A7iii & the Sony[masked]. Settings were Auto ISO to 4000 (all the shots were at[masked]) 1/1000 @ f/5.6. I popped on the 1.4 extender for a match then went back to just the[masked]
