What if it rains?

Polo is an outdoor event, but there is shelter under our stadium. We take the horses and the rider’s safety into consideration when determining if a match will take place during or after rain. As long as there is no lightning in the area, we can typically play.

If the match has already started and we have to postpone, rain date tickets will be handed out upon departure and honored on the makeup date or at another match during that polo season.
