Hello and Thank you to the new faces I met at the USC 2015 Rec Fest. I will be sending out informational emails as well as updating the club website over the next couple days. Stay tuned. if you have any questions in the meanwhile please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
USC will be playing a friendly mixed match with Westmont College at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club on Saturday March 7th at 2pm. This may be the only game we play this semester, so if you want to see some Trojan polo this is your chance!
Beginner Lessons for the month of March will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please email us back @ email@example.com if you are a recurring USC Polo student who is having any trouble making it to those lessons.
More Info on Beginner lessons below ( and in our FAQ tab):
WHEN/WHERE DO YOU PRACTICE?
We practice year-round four nights a week from 6:00-10:45 pm off campus at Fair Hills Farms (driving and tacking time included, but return time may vary depending on traffic). Club lessons are Tuesdays and Fridays. Team practices are Thursdays. We always arrange carpools.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Check us out at the club fair each semester, or contact us at our gmail. Once you've introduced yourself (tell us your name, riding/polo experience, and height so we can pair you with an appropriate horse), you're welcome to sign up for lessons by clicking on "Lesson Sign Up" at the top of the page and adding your name to the calendar on the day you want to come. On the day of the lesson, you will get a group text telling you when and where to meet (usually the EVK parking lot), reminding you what to bring, and who will be driving that day.
*Please note that we charge a $25 cancellation fee if you cancel the day of.

It grieves us deeply to have to announce that one of our most beloved ponies, Sparta, passed away this week from a severe case of colic.
Many would say that Sparta was one of our best--if not THE best--Trojan pony; not just because of her skills in the arena, but because she had so much heart and spirit. She was a joy to be around because she loved what she did. Anyone who ever played with her can attest to the fact that she made excited dragon noises whenever she made a good play, and nickered louder than anybody when it was time for treats. Charisma and courage like she had aren't something that can be taught. She was charming, courageous, and spirited because it was her nature.
Sparta was a lion-hearted horse who wanted to be a high-goaler in spite of her age; the kind of horse that a dinky program like USC was lucky to have. We were blessed to have her for as long as we did, and her death has truly left a hole in our hearts.
Join us this Sunday at Fair Hills Farm in Topanga Canyon, CA for some fun polo activities. This event is designed to let people who are interested in joining the club come check out what were about, where we play, and the horses we play with. There will be a Polo 101 to teach the logistics of the game as well as opportunities to get a little hands on experience with the horses and see the Fair Hills Grounds. Free food will be provided in addition to carpools.
