"As a polo player for the last twenty years, at varying different speeds and with different amounts of time to spend on the sport in different seasons of life, Millwood is always my go-to for polo. Whether I want to connect with like-minded friends and help teach new players and make new friends, or enjoy wonderful times riding at a speed that likely WON'T risk some crazy injury, or if I realy want to get at it and test the limits of both my own skills and that of my horse's, Millwood Polo Club offers all of these options and I wouldn't trade it for anything! Honored to be a long-time member and plan to be one for my lifetime!"
"The importance of position, teamwork, passing and working at lesser speeds of walk, trot, with the occasional canter help make all feel comfortable and lessen anxiety of rare mishaps."
Dr. Alan Clark
"I hadn't ridden a horse that trotted in 22 years, I certainly had not ridden a huge thoroughbred...Debbie Beauman made me completely comfortable in the surrounds and her wonderful retired Polo ponies...the third time I went, I took a Polo lesson, did a practice chukker and then got to actually play! ...I've been Addicted to Millwood's Social Polo since February 4, 2017."
“Millwood Polo is the most fun a person can have with their clothes on."
Rachel & Charlie Members
"So I've fallen in love with Millwood Polo. Debbie Beauman's concept of Social Polo...where you can play with wonderful people and horses on a regulation grass arena field Debbie built...it's not so rock-n-roll that you worry about your horse nor or your life! Walk, trot and a sprinkle of canter...and it's more of a brain game, she says."
"As I aged, my equine confidence began to wane. Social polo has allowed me to enjoy riding and competing at a pace I am comfortable with. Social Polo is something you can do, regardless of your age, sex or size."
“My horse and polo are the sunshine of my life.”
“The game ends with one thinking they are alive like never before.”
"Other riders and I don't think of the chukkers as competition. We like the slow pace and camaraderie while constantly encouraging opponents as well as teammates. The socializing doesn't end after the game, either, since we generally go to a local restaurant for refreshment."
“Begin it …. Boldness has Genius “
Millwood Polo has allowed this to happen. ...I finally struck up the boldness to take a ride over to Millwood Polo Club. I was pleasantly greeted by a group of Seniors with a ZEST for Life! The Polo Players are
all so friendly, kind, and Equine Passionate. ...And after we play on Saturdays, we have our Champagne, wine, cheese and chips. ...
We laugh and tell stories of our horse life . Then we may go out to eat at a local place. ... Life is Good! To all at Millwood Polo…I thank you!"
