Because of the current situation, all of our members are unable to practice, play, ride, and overall cannot take part in the club. However, our horses still require lots and lots of care.
Due to the COVID-19 safety requirements, we cannot move forward with our normal fundraising efforts nor can our members have their typical involvement. It is our top priority to keep our ponies happy and healthy. If you are willing and able, please consider donating to the Polo Club of UW Madison during this difficult time. Our horses still require the basics like boarding and feed year round. Anything and everything helps.

The first of the Club Bowl Games took place this weekend. A big congrats to The Wild aka All For Onesies for winning game one against the Red Hot Filly Peppers. Another big congrats to the Red Hot Philly Peppers for beating the Blue Jean Babes in game 2 of the club bowl! Coco was named Best Playing Pony for her nimble, responsive playing in game 2. Nice work ladies and ponies! Join us for our other matches!
Varsity had so much fun at SE Prelims! While they won in their match against Emory, they were beat out by Michigan. Congratulations to Michigan on their win! Also, a congratulations is in order to Maggie Williams for winning all-star player!
Varsity girls had a great time playing at Michigan State the other weekend. Thank you for hosting us MSU!
We had a wonderful time hosting a clinic this past weekend and sharing our love of polo with others! When asked what participants would recommend for improvement, many said to “have more clinics!” No worries, we will be hosting more clinics in the future! Keep an eye out in February/March for round two! :)
Also, a big congrats to our winning teams [ Sue Gribble, Irina Komarova, Natasha Saidikowski] and [Myranda Tanck and Marie Jolly], as well as our MVP, Kendyl Sherman! We hope to see you again soon!
Way to go JV! They traveled to Hillside this past weekend and went on to win both games. A big thank you to Hillside for hosting!
Our member of the month for October is none other than Amy James. Without Amy’s continuous hard work and commitment, the clubs transition to our new facility and taking care of our ponies would not be possible. Amy spends much of her time at the barn giving our new ponies the TLC they need as well as helping make sure the club is run smoothly. She always makes everyone feel welcome and and loves to share a laugh. Thank you Amy for being so awesome!
We are very excited to announce some new happenings for the club! We are working on getting settled into our new home at Dawson Pointe Stables. These fine facilities will allow us to enjoy playing in their outdoor and indoor arenas throughout the year as well as to provide a home for our wonderful ponies. Speaking of our ponies, we are very grateful to have two new additions. Our Cielito is now joined by Tierra (right) and Freya (left)! We are looking forward to getting this season started!
To bring the 2017-2018 season to an end, club members traveled to Ameritina for a friendly match. They traveled with six ponies, and were able to learn how to adapt to new sand! While they experienced some troubles on the way home (blowing a tire is no fun!), some friendly good Samaritans were quick to step in and helped the team get home in one piece (except that one tire)! We're extremely grateful for the St.Croix Polo Club and Ameritina facilities for hosting us!
