SPACE PORT? NO, SPORT OF KINGS!

 

TRAVEL AND PHOTOGRAPY – BILL FERRY

this is what a top notch polo facility looks like today. Located near Palm Springs, California, I was told that it is the largest polo facility in the world. There are 13 grass polo fields – you are looking across two of them in the image above. There are tack rooms too numerous to count and 2 “exercise fields” and a 5 story tall “tent” for private events. This is also the site for the Coachella Valley Music Festival, which is a notable event in itself. Spread over 2 weekends, the Festival draws 40,000 folks

Rider and horse seem as one as this player is off and running. Individual fields are the equivalent of 3 football fields long and a 160 yards wide. The futuristic structure in the background (& in the image above) is where the big money sits. For $1,400 a season you can get your name on a plaque and the use of a “VIP Cabana” for 12 Sundays
