A staple in the the polo and aiken communities is gone too soon. Delmer C Walton was a great man on and off the field. Tragically leaving behind his beautiful wife Tessa, and three of the most amazing boys, David, Callahan, and Harrison. The Equestrian Community is a tight knit family, always willing to give a hand to our own. An account is being set up through The Polo Player Support Group, where donations will go to Tessa and the boys to help ease the burden of day to day care for the family, farm, and horses. Any support will be received with the upmost gratitude.

Del was a teen in Texas hanging out with Laura Haskin , Chad, Scott Lancaster, and Mary at the polo club. He didn’t know how to dance. Laura taught him. Must have been around 1996-97. RIP
