Polo | Eldorado Polo Club
Polo may be known as the game of kings but we like to remind the guys it’s our game too! Empire Polo Club is famous for hosting the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals but we prefer it sans the crowds and with a few more ponies. The polo school offers private or group lessons December through the end of March. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sat on a horse or if you are an accomplished equestrian, there is a horse and lesson for everyone. If you have some riding or polo experience the coaching league leases horses by the chukker , allowing you play time on the grass with 2 pros. Don’t let the fact you’re on a horse fool you, riding is a fantastic workout, you will use muscles you didn’t know you had, leaving you feeling like you spent the afternoon on a yoga reformer.

Trail Riding | Smoke Tree Stables
If polo seems like a bit more than you’re ready to take on, try a more leisurely way to get your equine fix. Saddle up for either the one hour trail ride or the longer Murray Canyon Haul Ride offering views of the native palms as you meander by a stream in the Indian Canyons. Private group rides can be arranged, we recommend ending yours with a western themed cookout as the sun slips down over the Santa Rosa Mountains.
