Thanks to Tim Kelley and his horses Roxey and Bentley, Julia Arp, Sean Schmidt and photographer Bob Grant for all their help on Sunday. Couldn’t have done it without you.

Army Polo

The day JBLM came to Tacoma Polo Club.

It was military day on the polo field on Saturday August 27. Army veteran Michelle Gillespie, active duty soldier Sean Hardeman and his wife April came on a sunny Saturday morning to learn the basics of polo.

They started with tying tails and wrapping legs. They learned the basics of hitting the ball with short mallets and scrimmage on foot. They graduated to hitting with full length mallets while mounted on steady school horses. Everybody had fun and want to continue lessons.

Polo – Finally!

The weather, the holidays and acts of idiots be damned – polo is back!

 It may have been pouring down rain on Saturday but that didn’t dampen the spirits of Cameron Liberio, Bob Grant and James Daugherty for their first polo lesson of 2015. All three started polo last year but hadn’t played since the fall.

Everyone got re-acquainted with wrapping legs and tying tails before mounting up for a review of polo position and mallet strokes on the offside and the nearside, forehand and backhand.

That done, it was on to the main lesson, a two-on-two scrimmage with the… Continue reading
