Texas A&M’s Polo club features men and women of every level of experience in polo that compete at various levels of competition. The Battalion’s own videographer, Nolan Pho, shows off the behind the scenes of a practice.
This Monday we will be having our new member meeting at the barn at 7pm followed by barn cleaning. New members, at this meeting we will discuss club rules, the weekly schedule, how riding and chukkers work, and we will be answering your questions! After the meeting, you will be able to go through required horse safety training and pay club dues to join! Returning members, please come out to the meeting to pay dues for the semester and help us clean up the barn after free ride week. As a reminder, you cannot ride or participate in chukkers until you have paid dues for the semester. Starting this semester, you must also pass a short horse safety quiz in order to participate in horse activities!
The schedule of the week is as follows:
- Monday- New Member Meeting and Barn Cleaning 7pm at the barn
- Tuesday- Team Practice
- Wednesday- Riding 5pm with Brittany and Emily (Returners only)
- Thursday- Club Chukkers (for Open House and Free Riding volunteers who qualify)
- Friday- Riding at 5pm with Brooke and Brittany (Returners only)
- Saturday- Riding at 4pm with Megan, Marissa, and Brooke
- Sunday- Team Practice
Lastly, I’d like to congratulate our men’s and women’s teams on their victories this weekend! Both teams won their games by a very large margin. Be sure to come out and watch our team members compete later in the semester!
Thanks and Gig’em!
It’s time again for Free Riding Week! We will be doing free riding a little bit differently this semester. We will have free riding only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week. On these days, you will be able to come out and ride one of our polo ponies for FREE! No experience required! We will check people in from 6-7pm at our barn located at 3869 F&B Rd. At 7pm we will head to Freeman Arena where we will ride. Please carpool to the barn as we have a very small parking lot!
In order to ride, you will need to complete our release form which can be found online at maroonlink.tamu.edu/form/start/104191. You will need to log into maroonlink with your netID and password in order to complete the release. After you submit the form, you will receive a confirmation email. We will need to see this confirmation email before you will be allowed to ride.
Please be sure to wear closed-toe shoes with a heel and long pants! You will not be allowed to ride if you do not have on appropriate attire!
We hope to see lots of people out there!
Thanks and Gig’em!
