There was something in the air at Stony Hill Stables on Saturday as a team of girls in pink shirts lined up and mounted their ponies, faces determined as they headed to the ring.  That something was confidence.
For young women and men, the bond formed with horses gives them a foundation of trust, responsibility and communication. Horses and the Hamptons go together but the costs of riding can make it feel like a tale of two cities. …

Turf Battle for Bridgehampton Polo

A staple of the Hamptons summer social scene is saying so long. Bridgehampton Polo pretty much had the rug or in this case turf pulled out from under them. High goal development has trumped their high goal play. Polo enthusiasts however may find other avenues for single match events or head to Greenwich for top tournaments.

Bridgehampton Polo is the après beach destination for Saturday afternoons running through August 23rd.  Top players and their amazingly agile ponies take to the field for fierce competition.  While these pros make it look easy, it’s far from a ride through the park.  Sylvester Stallone once said, “Playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake.”

There’s plenty of social action field side as well with viewing options which range from a blanket by the field enjoying  gourmet food …
