Oh So Civilized

When I was a little girl, I had quite an experience at the Polo field.  Our friend, Jerry, was a player and we went to watch him.  I sat on my first horse there - a terrifying experience, for which I blame my fear of horses on!  He was HUGE and sweaty from the game, flys all over him and they perched me (all of 6 years old) on his muscular frame.   I cried and was sent home with a kitten - it was worth the ride!
Well, it's your turn - Today is the 2nd annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at the beautiful Will Rogers State Park.  Throw on your most stylish outfit from the 20's era, nosh on the finest from Los Angeles' most beloved gourmet food trucks and sip champagne while watching hunky horseman, Nacho Figueras strut his stuff on Los Angeles' only remaining Polo field.  Maybe you'll find a muscular frame to take your first ride on.....

Tickets are not sold at the event and must be purchased ahead of time - so get on it - times a wastin'!
