Help us make our $50,000 goal by January 1, 2015
Our shortfall is your oppportunity to really help the Work to Ride youth and our ponies. The Interscholastic Arena Polo season is underway and the kids are pumped and practicing hard. The outdoor arena is cold and the winds are whipping at 6:00 pm when the kids come nightly to exercise the polo ponies but their enthusiasm remains steadfast as they contemplate each upcoming game. "When is our next game ?" they say, or "Who is on their team? " or "Do you think we can win? " . The optimism is catchy and the opportunites make what we do so much fun so please donate now.
