Support Freedom Farm at our 10th Annual Polo Event!
What a HUGE blessing to have 10 years of support with sponsors, donors, attendees and volunteers at this show-stopping event held every year at the grand Blackberg Ranch! This year's event will be as breathtaking as ever with a professional Polo Match and Half-Time Live Auction, Divot Stomp and Hat Contest (both youth and adults). During the day there will be pony rides, face-painting, kids crafts, photo booth, carriage rides, raffle and later mix and mingle with professional polo players.
"Polo You Say?" Imagine; thundering hooves whipping down a grassy field, athletic riders strategically maneuvering their mounts around and between other horses while at the same time keeping their polo mallet at ready to strike the small white ball that is their ticket to victory. Meanwhile, at the sidelines, spectators, dressed in everything from formal attire to flip-flops and tees, are anticipating every move and cheering on their most loved team.
Polo is played on a 300 by 160 yard grass field with a goal on each end. Riders, on two teams, attempt to hit a small white ball while on horseback, with a polo mallet, from one teammate to the another or into their goal. Competitive polo matches can be found in more than 80 countries and are viewed by more than 50 million people each year. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, and Great Britain are among the the top Countries that host matches, bringing in crowds that contend those of other professional sporting events in the United States. While polo is thought to be thousands of years old, it first entered the United States in 1876 via American Publisher James Gordon Bennett.
