We are the 2015 National Champions! The Colorado State University Men’s Varsity Polo team took home our fourth National Championship in April. We are the first CSU club sport to win back to back National Championships in 1990 and 1991 followed by a third title in 1999. We are looking forward to another successful season in 2016. 

The Colorado State University Polo Club is an entirely student run CSU club sport that has been in operation since 1977. The club owns over 30 polo ponies that are boarded at the CSU Equine Center, where practices are held 6 days a week. Our Men’s and Women’s teams are very competitive on a National level, frequenting regional and national tournaments. In addition, the club has a large beginner and junior varsity program. Previous polo experience is not required to join, so we regularly have between 30 and 40 members who are learning to love the great sport of polo.

GIVING TO THE CLUB

Here at CSU Polo, our goal is to not only bring National Championships to Colorado State University, but to continue introducing people to the sport we love.

This is a student-run, student-coached organization that must raise $70,000 annually just to maintain our string of world-class ponies. Students are then responsible for their own travel and equipment.

Your donation to our program will have an immediate and lasting impact by allowing us to continue to properly care for our ponies and potentially provide scholarships to the team.

We are always accepting donations of the following items:

  • Polo ponies – please contact Bennett Moore for details 205-383-7081.
  • New or Used tack in good condition

  • Functional mane or body clippers
  • Standing wraps
