About Bend Polo Club
A Passion for Polo in Central Oregon
Our mission is to create a community of polo players in Central Oregon. We believe in teaching the sport to all levels of riding and playing ability. We also want to play - for fun and for competition. We foster a safe riding environment, continuing development of playing skills, and above all, a love for the sport of polo.
We are sanctioned by the United States Polo Association.

Players have frequent opportunities to play and socialize. Scrimmages and matches occur on a weekly basis. Bend Polo Club will host a regional tournament in July, inviting teams from across the Northwest.
Scrimmages and practices are open to the public to watch- bring your tailgating supplies!
Players develop skills through stick and ball practice, scrimmages, lessons, and off field discussions. The Club strives to teach players rules of the game, equitation, playing skills, and strategy and tactics.
Bend Polo Club offers lessons to all levels of riders. School horses are available for new students. Group lessons occur weekly. Private instruction is also available.
