Gardnertown Farm is pleased to celebrate its 16th year of Arena Polo with an exciting season ahead. While our core club has been together from the beginning we welcome new members as we are all great friends as well as fierce competitors.
We all enjoy the many old and new friends that come to play in our league matches, always looking forward to introducing the sport to new spectators and fans. We try to create an atmosphere that is conducive to family and friends and our heated viewing area is a great place for family fun.
Our charity tournaments bring people in from all over the area to enjoy what we consider to be the Worlds greatest sport. We have helped raise thousands of dollars for local charities. During the season we travel to a number of clubs in the area including Yale, Cornell, Skidmore, UConn and Shallowbrook and have been host to these clubs as well.
Additionally, in 2004 we hosted the first USPA Women’s Arena Tournament in the Northeast. In 2001 we started the Vassar College Polo Team that has played all of the major schools in the Northeast. The team competed in the USPA Southeast Regional in Virginia in 2004 & 2005. Additionally, in 2007 we sponsored a high school team that competed in the USPA Regional Tournament in Connecticut.
We invite all avid polo players and anyone interested in the game to be a part of our
