Horsing around at the Denver Polo Classic
The Schomp BMW Denver Polo Classic wound down another year Sunday at the Polo Reserve in Littleton. Hundreds of people filled the tents and took to the field to watch champion riders and horses vie for the coveted title of Denver Polo Classic Champions. The day featured three matches, Fly-Dog races and fantastic food and drink from some of the best restaurants Denver has to offer.
Ladies and gents showed up in their finest garden party attire with fetching hats and of course the classic polo shirt. Between matches, attendees were asked to come out onto the field to stomp the divots (making this Metromixer feel a little like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” minus the whole hooker thing). Each match put you on the edge of your seat, with multiple ties (including the final match) ending in a sudden-death overtime round with the Schomp BMW team taking the title and the trophy.
The Schomp BMW Denver Polo Classic is a thre-day event that is organized by the Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation. The organization makes every effort to ensure that the money raised by the three day polo extravaganza goes towards organization that aid and benefit children. — Carly Rose Moser, special to Metromix
