Vero Beach Polo Easter Sunday 2013

Thank you to all that came out to Vero Beach Polo on Easter Sunday. Another great and sunny day to enjoy Polo in Paradise.

Destiny Stables/Michelob Ultra
  1. Phillip Miles/Rachel Kelly
  2. Peter Busch
  3. Tiffany Busch
  4. Max Secunda
Rocking K Ranch
  1. George Kahle
  2. Devon Kahle
  3. Dolf Kahle
  4. Craig Fraser

Rocking K led going into halftime but Destiny/Michelob Ultra "DS/MU" put on a show in the 2nd half. A couple of quick goals by Tiffany got DS/MU ahead and at the end they won.

Perhaps the play of the match though was Devon Kahle stealing the ball from DS/MU running the length of the field and just missing a bouncing ball a few yards in front of the goal mouth. Never fear though George was there to score for Rocking K. This goal got the crowd on its feet. 1st and 3rd generation Vero Polo players teaming up.

Next weekend is the last Polo game in Vero for 2013 and it is for all the Marbles. Charlie Replogle turned in his jar of marbles today and we can't wait to see the battle Royal between Shamrock, Rocking K and Michelob Ultra.... always a great way to end the season. 

Thanks to everyone for coming out every weekend.. see you Sunday for all The Marbles and start planning for Vero Polo in 2014!!!

See you at Polo.
Dawn & James.

Thank you Sandy, George & Craig...

Vero Polo USPA Officers Cup Final & Consolation game

A cold day but hot Polo. The consolation game had Banbury Cross playing against Shamrock.
Banbury led by Nelson Gunnel had local hotshots Peter Busch, Tiffany Busch & Veros favorite cowboy Peter Blake.

Local team Shamrock brought in a ringer at #1. 12 year old Christian Weize. Max Secunda at back had the always consistent Hayden Walsh at 2 with Gonzalo DiCiurcio hustling all day to make plays.
Shamrock won over Banbury Cross.

The final of the United States Polo Association Officers Cup was played between:


  1. Devon Kahle
  2. Ian Angus
  3. Christian Alem
  4. Marcos Onetto
  1. George Kahle
  2. Neil Osburg
  3. Bill Townsend
  4. Craig Fraser
This game was very team taking a lead over the other by more than one came down to the last chukker.
George at 1 was as always the most solid player for his team. 
Neil Osburg played a very heads up game at 2.
It was a real treat to see Bill Townsend bring old school American horsemanship to Vero. (many generations of horse breeders, riders & polo players from Texas)

Ian Angus from Ontario Canada and his team Garanska won over Rocking K.
Veros Devon Kahle rode and played as we have come to expect.
Christian was great in the mid field.
Marcos really controlled the game.

Most valuable player: Marcos Onetto
best Playing Pony: Roo. Devon Kahle

Vero Beach Polo. United States Polo Association Players Cup

A wonderful day of Polo in Vero Beach. Shamrock vs Rocking K Ranch. Great strategy by Rocking K saw them win. However Shamrock led by John Walsh were not far behind. Taking a chance by adding 12 year old Christian Weisz to the team. Christian was superbly mounted, a great number one player who rode very well and at his young age has a knowledge of the game that can only be learnt by growing up in a Polo family. Despite the horese manship involved Polo is still a thinking mans game as demonstrated by Craig Fraser for Rocking K Ranch. Take the man out of the game and and you have it won.... Well done to Destiny Stables & Banbury Cross for providing us with a great 2nd match. See the pics...Well done Phillip, Pedro, Mauricio & the great Sain Joseph. Banbury Cross: Carly Liens. Nelson Gunnell. Tiffany Busch. Cowboy Peter Blake.... Please double click the slideshow below for pics from today's games. We will see you at Vero Polo soon.... DAWN & JAMES

Vero Polo Round Robin March 25th 2012

Happy Birthday to Phillip Miles and Ceasar..!

A mixed day today....rain in the forcast and we thought we might squeeze in some POLO. Unfortunately after 1 chukker and 2 minutes into the 2nd the sky opened up.

Val Biehl. Vet extraordinaire and MVP.. Most Vocal Player!
oh and it was a bit wet.. or am I sweating standing next to the great Val?

Playing in the rain is OK but the threat of lightening is a bit scary when you you are running about on the field on a horse with 4 metal shoes and you are waving a mallet in the air.. !

The field has been in great condition and could cope with a quick downpour... but we got more than that. While the field has a crown on it to let water run off there was just too much and the footing was a bit risky.

Still, thank you to all that stayed around until the game was finally called, and thanks to the diehard Vero Polo fans who sat it all out and still had a great time tail gating.

Next Sunday we have our season ending round robin games.. (For All The Marbles)!!!
We can't wait to see you at Vero Polo next Sunday!!!!

Vero Beach Polo The United States Polo Association Governors Cup

First of all we would like to congratulate the Vero Polo manager Craig Fraser for putting this all together despite the adverse weather... (by the way Craig..the chicken was great!!)

click the slideshow and choose full screen for best viewing

The final of the USPA Governors Cup saw Shamrock & Southern Eagle playing a very close game... up until the final chukker they were never more than one goal apart. At the start of the 4th chukker Tiffanny Busch on Ruby had 2 big runs scoring twice in succession.. this earned Ruby the best Playing Pony award...

Matt Coppola came up from Wellington to round out the Southern Eagle team.. One of the up and coming young American players.. Great ponies and technical ball handling along with a his being in the right place at the right time meant that he was awarded the MVP award.. All you polo fans keep an eye on him.. And keep shopping at the Tackeria!!!

The 2nd game for the Polo Grounds Challenge was a great way to wrap up the day at Vero Polo.

Lizzie Beer's Burnt Mills team against Ocean Grill. Lizzie played really well backed up by the ageless Tomas Ezcurra, Mike Egan & Billy Paterniti.

Wonderful team play saw them win over local favorites Ocean Grill (the very best restaurant in Vero Beach!)

The Ocean Grill team of Mason Primm at 3, Coleman Replogle at 1, a very fast and solid Dolf Kahle at 2 and Marcus Onetto at 4 showed great promise but just couldn't quite do it at the end... a very nice and penalty free game..

In fact a SUPERB day of POLO in Vero Beach.. Thanks everyone!!!!

James & Dawn...
