ABOUT THAI POLO & EQUESTRIAN CLUB
Set in more than 2,000 rai (or about 250 hectares) of picturesque grounds to the east of Pattaya, just 90 minutes or so drive from the capital, Bangkok, the Thai Polo & Equestrian Club is arguably a unique facility in all Asia and Australasia.
Boasting three full-sized, international-standard polo playing fields as well as two practice grounds, and stabling for more than 250 horses, the Thai Polo & Equestrian Club opened in 2005, although it was initially called, simply, the Thai Polo Club. This changed a few years later when the equestrian facilities were added to the mix.
The brainchild of polo enthusiasts Harald Link (President of the South-east Asian Equestrian Federation) and Mrs Nunthinee Tanner (considered the first female polo player in Thailand), the Thai Polo & Equestrian Club has grown in size and stature in recent years. The number of enthusiasts has grown steadily over the past decade or so, and the Club now has around 80 horses available for members and guests.
Over the years the club has attracted many local and international players. The Thai Polo Open, sponsored by B. Grimm, takes place every January and attracts between six and eight teams.
