U of I Horse Polo Horse Maintenance
The University of Idaho Polo Club offers any full time University of Idaho student the opportunity to learn about horsemanship and play polo. We do not require any prior experience, polo or horseback riding, and we welcome all ages. We have a women's and men's varsity team and a co-ed junior varsity team, all of which compete against neighboring university teams throughout the season.
Part of running this sports club is caring for its polo ponies, which are owned by the club. We currently have three horses that require regular feeding, graining, farrier and veterinary visits, as well as boarding. Boarding costs $200 per horse per month, each bag of grain costs $30, and each farrier visit costs about $90. Your donations will help us finance the maintenance for our horses and allow us to continue to provide the unique opportunity of playing polo to students.
