Wine Country Polo in Rincon Valley

By

Rincon Valley Wine County PoloI wonder how many people know that they can watch polo free in Rincon Valley at the Wine Country Polo Club field? I went to my first game this last weekend and had an absolute blast!  

 

Polo is a fast moving game with only 8 players (4 per side) on the field at a time.  To prevent exhaustion to the horses, each quarter is only 7:30 mins long.   There is 1 umpire on horseback.

 

 

There are plenty of places to watch the matches for free, or you may prefer to pay to have a more luxurious experience, as we did.  This particular event, photographed below, was a benefit for Wounded Veterans and was $180 per plate.  Lunch was delicious, and wine tasting  generous. Generally, polo can be watched most weekends at the Wine County Polo fields beginning at 9:30 am through Oct 1st 2017.  Additional practice/play can be observed on Thursdays beginning at 3:30.

 

 

Where: 560 White Oak Drive Santa Rosa

When: Thurs 3pm "Stick and Ball"   3:30 "Chukkas" (7 1/2 minutes games)

More info: Wine Country Polo

Wow Jim Cheney what a fun tip for people in your community! I've never been to a polo match, only seen snippets on TV and usually in a movie. Sounds like your afternoon was picture perfect and for a great cause.

I have never watched polo played, but it seems like something I might enjoy.  I know I would enjoy sipping on a nice glass of wine!

Colleen Fischesser Northwest Property Shop I had not seen a polo match either and was more looking forward to the lunch, but the match was actually fun to watch & the announcer explained what was going on so you didn't really need to know the rules beforehand

To think, I only expected Polo to be in the U.K.! Your photo is beautiful! I'll bet this won't be the last time you attend. It must have been very exciting and different too!

Hello Jim Cheney, I remember watching polo a couple of times in New York state.  It is fast moving.

Patricia Feager it was fun & educational and yes, I'd do it again but probably only annually.  Im not otherwise a horse buff.

Joan Cox it's not exactly in "Denver" but if your passing thru Sedalia, you could catch a game per the Denver Polo Club's website 
 
BTW, Gwen is flying to Nebraska today and has a layover in Denver
