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

Day broke in blazing sunshine for the July clinic at Polo Zealot School. Karla Tripoli, Susie Heuscher and Leslie Quinto came out to give polo a try. Karla has been trying to find time to take a clinic for months. The date and her schedule finally meshed.

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.
