We were invited to visit the Silicon Valley
Polo Club in Gilroy to watch them play some real
horse polo. It was amazing to see the skill level
needed to ride a galloping horse down the field
and strike the ball.
After the horse polo match we gave them a short
demo of Segway Polo and then let them try out
the Segways. Within a few minutes the polo players
were involved in a fun but competitive game of
Segway Polo! While they were playing a few of
the Segway Polo players got to try hitting a
ball from the back of a horse - a completely
different experience that increases your appreciation
of the game.
When the game wrapped up we had a great barbecue
and spent time talking with the club members.
They seemed to enjoy playing polo on the Segway and we enjoyed watching them
play - horse polo and Segway polo.
