Stamp divots, bring a picnic, enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, and watch the action matching talented athletes and animals from around the country – both horse and rider making the fast-paced game entertaining from start to finish.
The base of the Bighorns has been hosting chukkers since the 1890s, when a pair of Scottish brothers set up a pony breeding operation, a polo field and introduced the game of polo to their cowhands. The tradition lives on, drawing notable players from all over the world for the entire summer season.
Two clubs, The Big Horn Polo Club and the Flying H Polo Club, and nine playing fields ensure that polo is played throughout the entire summer:
The Big Horn Equestrian Center host polo games every Sunday and practice matches throughout the summer months, fielding teams from the Big Horn Polo Club, the oldest polo club west of the Mississippi. For match schedules, visit: http://www.thebhec.org/2015_calendar_july.html
Flying H Polo Club features games every Saturday throughout the summer with preliminaries held on Thursday’s prior to the games. Bring your chairs or blankets for sitting on the grass or in the back of pickup and enjoy an afternoon of polo. For game schedules, visit: http://www.flyinghpolo.com/schedule.htm
