Is this the last Polo Noir event?
After 9 incredible seasons of Polo at Hidden Creek, we will be hosting the fourth and final event on July 27th. Our gracious host, Sean Keys, the owner of the Hidden Creek property, will be going in to have a 2nd hip replacement this Spring. He will be retiring from the sport of Polo to focus on long term health and his family. The property will be changing hands late this Summer and moving away from equestrian sports.
We are all committed to one thing…One. Final. Amazing. POLO NOIR.

I have never been to a polo match, what can I expect? Incredible action. One of the world’s oldest games is also one of its fastest. Balls can travel up to 110 mph. Horses gallop and cut at 30mph. Player and horse work in partnership to get a ball through a goal, while using every possible strategy to prevent the opposing side from doing so. What happens on that quest is both brutish and beautiful.
