Horses are some of the most perceptive animals, as evidenced by the saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't explain his intimate knowledge of your childhood fears."

Brandywine Polo Club gallops into its 2012 summer season with a Memorial Day picnic that fuses four-legged competition with live music, complimentary beers, and an old-fashioned pig roast. Tucked among the rippling landscapes of Brandywine Valley, the 300-acre facility dates back to 1950 and represents one of the oldest polo establishments on the East Coast. A tree-lined entry drive weaves visitors onto the grounds, where two lush playing fields and a shaded pavilion provide more luxury than a battery-powered massage monocle. There, picnic-goers lounge beneath the late May sun as four-player teams battle on the field, while off the field, hands harness draft beers and saucy eats from an all-you-can eat barbecue buffet. Additionally, Philadelphia band the Mini Qs will crank out freewheeling jazz tunes to drown out the riffs of “Enter Sandman” seeping from the headphones of horses trying to warm up.
