Polo Season Starts Soon
Indio, California: With the polo
season starting January 3rd, Dave and I made another scouting trip over to the
Empire Polo Club to see the
facility. Forget horses, the polo club was a beehive of activity. Gardeners and
groundskeepers busy attending to the massive polo fields, and road crews
installing traffic dividers and paving the roads inside the 78 acre club.
We did not see a horse today. Not one.

Not sure why these are not statues of horses???

We drove around the grounds, walked around the grounds and could not find one
thing out of place. The club seems ready to greet the crowds on January 3.
This is the field used for the Sunday matches we have attended. Nine football
fields can fit inside a polo field.
After our tour, we had another great lunch at the on-site
Tack Room Tavern... where (if you choose) you can belly-up to the bar on
a saddle. Hey, why not?
Until my next update, I remain, your polo correspondent.
