Divot Stomp

During the half time of the Main Match on Sunday (between the 3rd and 4th chukker),  polo spectators get to walk out onto the field during the DIVOT STOMP and help with field maintenance, replacing the divots put into the grass by the horses' hooves.  Enjoy this time old tradition just like in the movie "Pretty Woman".
