Now that we are happily settled at our new place we have finalized our Fall 2012 schedule. We have a lot of home games this year so please come check out the new facilities and cheer on our ponies and players!
The Skidmore Polo team is finally moving! We will now be playing at County Line Stables in Amsterdam, NY.
We really look forward to the move to such a nice farm with beautiful facilities! More pictures to come, please visit their website at http://www.countylinestables-ny.com/site/.
While moving in to my new place I found some old Skidmore photos:
Lolita had a great Christmas at her new home.
A picture and news article about Skidmore's win at Nationals in 1989.
While our men's team was less successful at Regionals with two losses, our ponies were outstanding winning best playing string and Herbie taking home best playing pony! One of our players, Bill Miller was also award for best sportsmanship.
Our men’s team is on its way to regionals after spending the weekend at prelims where they beat out Roger Williams’ and Yale’s squads to win the tournament. Our ponies swept the tournament in a similar fashion winning best playing string with our pony Missy winning best playing pony. Keep an eye out for our women’s team’s prelim results next weekend!
Although we didn't win, we still had a great time at the Bill Fields Tournament. Skidmore played a tough game against Cornell on Wednesday, followed by a close game Thursday evening against the University of Kentucky squad. Our ponies went on to play in the University of Virginia versus Yale womens game on Saturday night. Everyone loved our ponies and they all played very well in all three games.
Recently our facilities have come under new management with the intent to upgrade the property in the near future.
In addition to our t-shirts, which have turned out to be a big hit, we've got hats! One size fits all adjustable Skidmore Polo Club hats. Pictures to come!
Parents Weekend was a great success!!! Thank you to everyone who came out to watch us play and to those of you who helped make Parents Weekend 2011 such a success!

Skidmore Polo 4/8/10- Due to a budget surplus from the Skidmore Student Government, Skidmore Polo was given the green light to order new equipment. We would like to thank our new sponsors Gladiator Polo and Dover for working with the Club as we are a non for profit institution. Within the next few weeks our equipment is going to arrive, the ponies and players could not be happier.
