Celebration of the Horse


For decades, the Denver Polo Club has been home to ALL types of equine disciplines. This weekend we are partnering with Rocky Mountain Alliance Children's Foundation to host equestrians at the highest levels. We invite you to join us for a weekend of excitement and spectacular horsemanship. This year we will be honoring the incredible Bini Abbot from the Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue. She has saved hundreds of horses and her tireless efforts will be recognized as we kick off the equestrian season in Colorado. All proceeds from this weekend will support Rocky Mountain Alliance Children's Foundation. Each year, RMA donates thousands of dollars to local nonprofits in the form of grants.  Our goal is to help our beneficiaries help the children of our Denver community.
