Horses and Horsepower
Scottsdale, AZ, USA
Story and Photography Rebecca L. Welter
This was such a fabulous event!...I loved every second of every minute!...Not only the speed, agility, athleticism and thundering hooves of the fast and furious Polo Matches...but the fun along the sidelines as well..."People Watching!" There were three matches, “USA vs. Columbia,” “Work to Ride vs. Harvard,” and “Bellaire vs. The Hamptons.” There was a Divot Stomp for each of the 3 matches, so there was plenty of fast paced action...and a lot of FUN!
This was Scottsdale's 2nd year to host this event, and in 2011, they had 2300-2700 guests to attend...this year 9,188...so one can only guess what next year will hold!
