“Our sponsors have been with us since the beginning. Without their support, the Series would not be as extensive as it is,” explains Dan Keating, Polo Series founder.

The Polo Series takes place in the bucolic setting of Glen Farm, the last 100 acres of what was once a 700-acre manorial farm whose settlement dates back to the 1600's. Its classical stone barns from the
Gilded Age and its park-like grounds were rehabilitated by Keating and thrive today as an equestrian and community recreational property, and home of the Polo Series.
