Have you heard of the Adirondack Polo Club in Westport, NY? I had no idea until recently that it existed! I’d vaguely heard of the sport, but did not realize it was played so close by. A team-sport on horseback? That sounds very interesting to watch.
The organization’s website describes this exciting sport as follows:
The 2,500 year old game of polo is one of the fastest, roughest, and most dangerous sports played today. It is gaining popularity as a premier spectator sport and is an easy game for the first time spectator to enjoy. Imagine the excitement of seeing players on thoroughbred horses bumping and jostling with each other, similar to hockey on horseback, racing at top speeds down the field, while striking a small white ball with the precision of an experienced golfer. (Adirondack Polo Club)
If you want to watch a match this summer there is good news. Spectators can watch for free!
