JULIAN IS READY TO GO
As some of you may recall, we got a new Thoroughbred named Julian a few weeks ago. Unfortunately he got laid up by a bad tooth infection, but he's all good to go now! We took him out for a test-run last night, and he's very steady and easygoing, making him a great beginner horse. He's a little out of shape from all that bedrest though, so for now he's only going to be playing in Susu's lessons (sorry team members!).
WILL ROGERS NEEDS GROOMS
Hello team members! Susu and Mike need an extra set of hands at Will Rogers this season. They would like us to send one groom per day each weekend for the the rest of the month. What's the upside? Well, besides the chance to network at the local grass field, you'll get free parking, and one free polo lesson for each day you groom! Contact Barbara if you're interested, and she'll hook you up with the parking pass.
Clarice has officially gone into retirement from polo. She had a very successful career as one of Memo Garcia's high-goal ponies during her youth, and at the age of 25 she's definitely ready for an easier lifestyle. During the year and a half that she was with us, she was an excellent pony, being gentle and reliable enough for beginners, but still alert and athletic enough to be an asset in any team practice. We're going to miss you Clarice! Enjoy your retirement.
Hello everyone! Our alumni Arshia Rios has kindly invited us to watch a high-goal polo tournament at the beautiful Santa Barbara Polo Club on Sunday, September 21st. If you've never seen grass polo before, there's no better place to start!
We've added a sign-up list on the calendar. She needs a head count a week in advance, and space will be limited depending on how many people with cars sign up, so go reserve your spot now!
LESSON SWITCH THIS WEEK
Hi everyone! Unfortunately our team got spread a little thin this week by beginning-of-the-year department/club/job meetings, so we had to cancel Tuesday's lesson. Fear not though! To make up for it we have scheduled an extra beginner lesson for this Thursday to give new members another opportunity to try out polo.
