Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Polo Ponies, Indio, CA

I went to a training for school yesterday which required I attend another school for the morning. When I finished the training, I decided to take the back roads home. I had packed my camera and the day was cloudy, but with periods of sunshine, a perfect day in the desert! There is a large polo ground in Indio, which is sometimes used for outdoor concerts. As I headed down that street, I spied quite a few cars parked off to the side of the road. As I pulled off the road, a man on a horse went by, ponying quite a few polo ponies. But, before I could drag my camera out of its bag, he and the horses were on their way down the road! I did manage to get a couple of rear-end pics of them! I guess he was out exercising the polo horses! I plan on taking my camera with me at least once a week from now on and going home through the date groves. Click on the photos to enlage them and see the polo ponies.

The girl that did the training on my young horse plays polo too.

Oooh! Lucky you! I wonder if you could ask them if you could watch them practice? I so enjoyed watching polocrosse this past summer. I know I'd also enjoy the polo ponies, too.
