Polo in Houston, TX

I'm about to start riding again after a couple of years off. I had a great friend in Austin who lent me horses to ride / train on when I lived there. I'm fairly new to Houston and am looking for a similar deal here. If you know of anyone who I should contact, I would be very grateful if you could put me in touch. Thank you in advance!

Cheers, Marc.

I will be returning to Brazil on Wednesday and then prepare further for my trip to Nigeria at the end of the month. There will be… Continue

Something about polo on the beach makes the champagne a little sweeter, winning a little more light-hearted and…

England Rides To Victory in the 2009 Westchester Cup

England’s team dashed hopes for an American victory in the 2009 Westchester cup on Sunday February 21 at International Polo Club Palm Beach. The match was won in overtime with a final score of 10-9.
