Though it was carved out of rural scrubland in 1928, the Houston Polo Club now treats humans and hooves to gripping polo matches played on rolling greens situated on the outskirts of Memorial Park. At the heart of the club's 26 lush acres is Farish Field, home to weekly polo matches held every Sunday. Whether watching the action from general-admission seating or brushing up on polo lingo from the shaded grandstand, spectators can witness all of the goals, bumps, and hooks that got horses banned from football. The club's many amenities—including restrooms and a full grill with food and catered concessions—keep spectators comfortable during the action. The Houston Polo Club also houses a polo school with lessons and leagues for spectators who want to take the field themselves, and a riding school with lessons for riders of all ages.
