ARIANA: Ariana was once our coach Ardeshir's polo pony, but recently he has given her to Barbara Blumenthal our past president. Barbara consistently helps the team by volunteering her and Ariana's time to our beginners lessons. Ariana is a seriously cute and athletic pony that has so far ran circles around any of her opponents. She is recognizably the only grey horse affiliated to the USC polo club. If Barbara is around, check this pony out!
COGNAC: This handsome old thoroughbred's hobby is finagling out of pasture and getting into trouble with the local mares. Cognac came to the club a long time ago after he ended his high-goal career. Nowadays, Cognac leads a much more simple life teaching beginners how to ride. He alone holds the record for the longest career in our program at a whopping 10+ years!
FELIZ: Grandma Feliz is one of our oldest little Argentines. She's been everywhere and seen it all. Don't let her adorable forelock fool you, she is handy like an argie champ! The club's ongoing joke is that we'd like to clone her... (except we're not actually joking). She'll often take a power-nap on the tie rail while being tacked.
JULIAN: This absolute stud of a bay, thoroughbred gelding is named Julian. This massive sized horse has a very gentle personality and easygoing temperament, which makes him an excellent first-time polo pony. Nevertheless, he is a favorite of the advanced team members due to his awe inspiring size and relative speed.
PISTOLA: Pistola was generously donated to us by the Busch family. She's a super hot and handy Argentine with a trojan competitive spirit. This pony moves like an wind-up toy, making her very fun to play for the advanced players. While, Pistola is very sassy and can often be seen making scary faces, she never actually does anything mean and will gladly accept attention in the form of pets or food!
SANTANA: Santana, or some club members like to call her Santy, is the USC Polo Club's newest addition to the string . She is a very handy mare who loves to play polo and run at the sound of the mallet hitting the ball. While we are excited to add to our string, we are taking our time getting her adjusted to the life of a Trojan Polo Pony. If you see this pony visiting a lesson or practice, show her some trojan family love.
