Have your kids ever seen the “Game of Kings” played live? It’s majestic and relaxing to lounge on a blanket with a picnic brunch or lunch and watch horses pound up and down the field right before you. (Players often let the kids on the field between matches to meet the horses.) Learn a little bit about polo, watch a match and then hike the park or tour Will Rogers old house (he was a huge horse and polo fan).
Matches are free and open to the public all summer. Saturdays from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
