Army Polo

Posted on: August 30th, 2016 by Claudia

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.

Thanks to former students Tina Anderson, Tim Kelley and Sean Schmidt for making it a success. And thanks to Dean Siemon from NW Guardian for coming out to cover the fun and publish a story with photos. The article was posted on Thursday Sept. 1.
