Southwest High School Comes to SD Polo!

Last Friday, we entertained about 20 ASB students from Southwest High School.  We took a tour of the polo property, learned how to care for a horse, explained the rules and the history of polo, and then let the kids try it out for themselves!

Each student sat on Cilantro, one of our sweet school horses.  Being so close to a horse and sitting on one was a first for many!

Next, we played with some foot mallets and Kimo, one of our Polo School instructors, helped the kids learn to hit the ball.

We finished up their visit with the Spreckels Cup semi-finals, autographs from the players and lunch!  We had such a fun time with the ASB students!  Thanks to councilmember David Alvarez for helping us coordinate this fantastic event.
