Santa Barbara Polo Club
Considered the jewel of the North American Riviera, the Santa Barbara Polo Club is one of the leading polo facilities in the world. The Club is renowned for hosting major tournaments such as the Centennial Celebration featuring Prince William, and the annual Ambassador Holden Cup in honor of Glen Holden, a former U.S. Ambassador and founder of the Federacion Internacional de Polo (FIP).
Coastlines, polo players, equestrians tie California and Dominican Republic
The hostess of the event, Isabella Wall, Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism’s Representative in California, said, “We are thrilled to represent the Dominican Republic to equestrian enthusiasts here in California. Dominican Republic and Santa Barbara have so much in common. From our equestrian lifestyle and luxury, to our vast coastlines, polo players are sure to feel as at home in Dominican Republic as they do in Santa Barbara.”
