Dress Code Many people envision polo as the Kentucky Derby where ladies don their beautiful dresses and elaborate hats. But polo at Southern Spring Farm is a family event; casual and laid back. Comfortable shoes, jeans, or casual dress is perfectly acceptable. Of course, if you’d like to don your fanciest hat, you are more than welcome!
The Divot Stomp If you’ve seen Pretty Woman, you know about the Divot Stomp. It’s one of the oldest and most widely known traditions of polo. When the game breaks at halftime, spectators are invited to march onto the field to socialize and replace the mounds of earth (divots) that are torn up by the horses’ hooves during the game. This serves as a great time to meet new people, move around after the first half, and help keep the field safe and beautiful.
Safety As in any sport there are factors you have to be mindful of as a spectator. In baseball, foul balls may fly into the stands; in golf, a player may hit the ball off the course; and in basketball, a player may fall into the seats. In polo it’s the same. A player may get a bad hit on the ball and it’ll go flying into the crowd, or if spectators aren’t paying attention a horse may come a little too close to them. It’s up to the spectators and the players to keep the game safe and enjoyable, so watch the game and keep an eye on what’s happening around you.
