Polo is a 2500 year old game that pairs some of the industry’s top athletes against each other in a fast paced, exhilarating, event. Imagine spending the afternoon watching these athletes bumping and jostling each other, racing at top speeds down a 10 acre grass field, while striking a small ball with the accuracy of an experienced golfer.

The LSU AgCenter presents, The Clover Cup; Polo Tournament at Leah Farms in Folsom, Louisiana on October 2. This event features the New Orleans Polo Club, Family Fun, Calcutta Style Auction, a Pretty Woman Hat Contest and much more.

All proceeds go to benefit LSU AgCenter Equine Programs, such as 4-H equine clinics, shows, and events, Master Horseman clinics, Louisiana State 4-H Horse Show, Southern Regional 4-H Horse Show Championship Educational Trip, and many more exciting new opportunities offered by the LSU AgCenter.

Ticket prices are $25.00 adult and $10.00 youth (under 18). Food and beverage included.
