Please bring a dish to share , Adult Beverage of choice , lawn chairs and get ready for a spectacular fun filled afternoon. Stomping the Divots at Half-time, all are welcome on the field for the traditional “divot stomping.” During polo play, small patches of grass and dirt are torn up by the polo ponies’ quick starts, stops and turns, creating divots that can be dangerous for the horses. Fans make an experience out of “stomping” the divots back in place, while helping to keep the ponies and players safe. Ticket price and payment options will be posted shortly !
