Aloha Dear Friends,
It’s that time of the year, polo season is here on Big Island Hawaii. The games take place at the beautiful Waikii Ranch located along Mauna.
October – December
11:00am – 4:00pm
Waiki’i Ranch Polo Field
Gates Open at 11am
My dear friend Chris plays for the Mauna Kea Polo Team. Her two horses Lakota and Chief put on a powerful show.
I asked Chris what’s her favorite part about playing and she says, “it’s like going to battle and a game for warriors. If you have any stress, you get it all out in one seven minute chuckers.” Polo matches are divided into seven and one-half minute chuckers. There are six or more in one match. Polo is one of the oldest team sports on our planet and started with players knocking a goats head around.

With a $5 donation, children enjoy the games for free. I can’t see a more entertaining way to spend your Sunday. There is homemade BBQ available to purchase and always a pot of Kona coffee brewing. The season ends the second week of December.
Bring your family and friends to share a day filled with adrenaline. One of my favorite parts of the day is at the end of Chris’s game, I get to give Lakota and Chief a bath and watch them roll on the grass.
During half time, it is so much fun to stomp out divots. During polo play, patches of grass are torn up by the horses, creating divots that can be dangerous for the horses. Fans make an experience out of “stomping” the divots back in place, a great way to meet fellow spectators and strike a casual conversation on the field.
It is such a treat to be watching a game filled with action and then have this calming magical mist flow over the polo field, as the horses and players disappear in the distance.
I hope to see you half time on the field stomping out divots.
Ever Dreamed of Living in an Equestrian Haven?
Then Waikii Ranch is for you. An exclusive gated community with a large clubhouse and of course, a stunning polo field and endless riding paths.
I love Wakiki Ranch. I lived here for 2 1/2 years when I was managing my friend’s masterpiece ranch that was built by Erin Keck, the heir of the world-renowned Keck Observatory founders. This 52 acres Cedar log mansion cost over $32 million to build, and I had the honor of selling Hale Mehana in 2020: 67-1229 Pakila Rd
“Satori, I know the passion and love you have always felt for Hale Mehana and that was shown in your care and pride while you had the listing on our ranch. The sale of this property will be quite a feather in your cap and hopefully bring you many new listings and buyers. Your positive outlook and spirituality embodies the essence of the Islands and whoever chooses you as their realtor will find themselves a thousand times blessed. I am so thrilled that you are our realtor representing us in the sale of Hale Mehana. It was truly meant to be and all the pieces have magically fallen into place with the buyers, sellers and realtors being the major pieces in this amazing and beautiful puzzle !”
