The Virginia International Polo Club will host an exciting high-goal exhibition polo match on Friday, July 3rd at 12:00 noon at historic Llangollen located on Trappe Road, Uppervillle, Virginia. This 20 Goal Match will benefit Golden Dreams Therapeutic Riding Center and will feature some of the most competitive players in the country, including top American players Adam Snow and Owen Rinehart. Each team will have an aggregate handicap of 20-goals which will make this event an exciting spectator event as well as one of the highest levels of polo played in Virginia. For those of you who have never been out to Llangollen, this is a wonderful opportunity. The vistas are breathtaking and the polo field and pavilion are top notch. This event is a great kick-off the Fourth of July weekend with a luncheon & Silent Auction under the fieldside Pavilion with all the proceeds to benefit Golden Dreams Therapeutic Riding Center.
Golden Dreams Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with disabilities in Loudoun and surrounding counties in Virginia. Individuals with almost any cognitive, physical and/or emotional disability can benefit from therapeutic riding through safe, supervised interaction with equines.
Lisa Iantosca, Board President says, “ We are extremely excited about the upcoming polo match hosted by VIPolo Club. More than anyone, the horse community and specifically the polo community, understands how powerful the relationship between a horse and rider can be. We look forward to increasing the awareness of the public benefits Golden Dreams provides and the potential for raising much needed funding for our many program needs.
