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.

Play

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!

Develop

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.

Lessons

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.

For lessons contact Henri Du Toit

Location

We are located at the beautiful Camp Fraley Ranch in southeast Bend. We are gratefully equipped with a regulation sized polo field and an incredible view of the mountains.

Henri Du Toit

Bend Polo Club was founded by Henri Du Toit, a former professional polo player now a resident in Bend. Henri has been involved with the sport of polo since 1990. Henri played professional polo for nine years reaching a 3 goal handicap.


He worked as a club manager and polo instructor, including his own polo school in New York at the Mashomack Polo Club. In addition to teaching at the Bend Polo Club, Henri teaches polo clinics throughout the Unites States as a certified United States Polo Association instructor.


In 2015 Henri coached the Zone 2 team at the 2015 National Youth Tournament Series Championship.
