A unique way to support the Great Meadow Foundation


Want to Gallop through the splash on course? Race for the wire? Ride into the winners circle?  All we ask is that you make a donation to Great Meadow Foundation.  We’ll take you where legends are made. Through Gate 2, park on the stable pad near the arena.  Depending on the footing, we’ll walk the polo field, cross the swan pond dam, and ride onto Fleming Farm to follow a rushing stream there.  Then, back to the racecourse where Saluter won 6 Gold Cups! Photo ops for Facebook abound! The ride ends with a tailgate (we provide) to celebrate your recent exploits on course. Prepay online and save $5!

Like to rent a suitable mount?  Call the local polo school to make arrangements to meet at Great Meadow.  $95 and a signed release.  Call (561) 373-5124.
