The Scouting Report
As spring heats up into summer, Farish Field at the Houston Polo Club quakes under crashing hooves as polo matches unfold across the historic grounds. On May 11th, the track celebrates Mother's Day with the Ponies and Petals Cup, which also features a derby-hat fashion show. The season closes on June 15, when top young riders compete in the USPA Juniors Tournament and spectators observe Father's Day by complementing the referees with particularly warm "Atta-boys". Matches typically last between 90 minutes and an hour, and crowds can step away from the action to refuel with eats from the new Red Oak Grill, which serves food and drinks from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Fans can also stop by the Houston Polo Club Tack Shoppe to pick up polo souvenirs to remember their visit and maybe get an autograph from their favorite horse.
Houston Polo Club
Located on 26 sprawling acres just a short distance from downtown, The Houston Polo Club has been treating humans and hooves to gripping polo matches played on lush terrain since 1928. During the season, weekly scheduled matches take place on Sundays. Spectators get to watch these equine bouts from the Red Oak Lawn, where they can also brush up on their polo lingo as they witness every exciting goal, bump, and hook.
