I 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)
