Perhaps our Charity Polo Match on Saturday June 14, 2014, should have been called Water Polo. All the rain that fell in the week before the event left the field too soggy for horses, and the St. Louis Polo Club was forced to call off the match. But the creative minds at the St. Louis Polo Club came up with a super fun, wacky alternative: Golf cart polo, featuring the polo players as drivers and guests as the players. It was great fun for all!

In addition, the festival featured tons of kids activities, a kids parade at halftime, bounce house, photo booth, Long Meadow Rescue Ranch Barn Buddies, specialty cocktails for adults, beer, soda, food, a silent auction, gift shop, a polo shot game. Guests got to meet the players and their ponies up close and personal.

The event was at the Kraftig Polo Club on Blue Heron Farm at 4020 Benne Road in Defiance, Mo. 63341.
