Tailgating Equestrian-Style at Sunday Polo in Wellington, FL
There’s the pristine side of polo—the sweet mingling scent of dewy grass and polo ponies, bronzed socialites shaded under Sunday hats, the clean clack of the mallet striking the ball, the thunderous rolling of hooves mixed with the patter of polite clapping at the International Polo Club. Then there’s the darker side, with plots worthy of the seediest soap opera—the thud of twenty-one polo ponies simultaneously dropping dead from poison, the tsks surrounding the death of a teen left to die by the very man who brought the sport to Wellington, the whispered rumors of drugs and adultery among the players. Spread out your sheet, bring your wine and brie, and witness the full spectrum of Sunday polo, the equestrian tradition where royalty, celebrities, and Wellington’s local community gather to watch the regal sport—and get the latest gossip.
