Polo – Finally!

Posted on: January 19th, 2015 by Claudia

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

Lake Oswego Polo

Posted on: March 13th, 2014 by Claudia

Polo returned to Lake Oswego Hunt on Sunday for the first time in more than 35 years, at least for the afternoon. The arena echoed with the thwack of wooden mallet on leather ball as six intrepid riders learned the basics of polo at an introductory clinic.

Instructor Claudia Howell, with help from polo player Mackenzie Martin, introduced the rules and mallet skills using foot mallets so players could get a feel for the game before having to ride a horse and hit the ball at the same time… Continue reading

First String Polo Ponies

Posted on: June 26th, 2013 by Claudia

Tim Kelley is starting the 2013 outdoor season at Tacoma Polo Club with two, count’em, two polo ponies. Fanta and Fluffy will carry him to goals and ride-offs and fantastic penalty shots.

When Tim started polo lessons in late 2011, it had been years since he’d been on a horse. He’d ridden as a child and watched polo games at Lake Oswego Hunt Club. Life intervened but he never forgot the fun he’d had riding and always wanted to learn polo.

An internet search brought him to Tacoma Polo Club and lessons at… Continue reading
