What You'll Get
Horses and humans have worked together for centuries, transporting goods, fording rivers, and sharing the blame for the fall of Troy. Watch your fellow humans bond with the noblest of creatures with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to the Houston Polo Club (a $20 value). Matches are held every Sunday though November 13. Click here for a full schedule.
The Houston Polo Club was established in 1928, and honors its regal sport with two polo fields and more than 26 acres of land speckled with four-legged athletes. Every Sunday, the championship Farish Field hosts gripping polo matches, from invitationals to open tournaments. Split into six chukkers of equine action, each match invites fans to storm the field during the third and fourth chukker for the traditional divot stomping, when onlookers repair divots created by pounding hooves and stampedes of high-heeled Spanish conquistadors. General admission offers a unicorn's eye view of match play, allowing fans to witness bumps, hooks, and the prematch trash talk exchanged among competitive thoroughbreds.
The Houston Polo club also hosts the on-site Ten Goal Grill, which sates appetites with myriad concessions during the matches (not included in the value of this Groupon). Meanwhile, the Kids' Corral occupies untamed youngsters. The Houston Polo Club is also conveniently located near upscale shopping and dining at the Galleria.

About Houston Polo Club
