Jared Sheldon - April 22 - 24 and May 14 - 19, 2022

South Bay Polo members had an amazing time with Jared Sheldon who offered a member clinic, tournament play, chukkars and lessons in May.  Our members were able to have swing and game analysis as well as riding lessons with Jared who is 4 goals outdoors and a 7 goal indoor player.  Our members took full advantage of Jared’s visit not only participating in the clinic but also took lessons to focus on riding, game play and indoor strategies.   

Jared has turned his love of the sport into his career, including winning the U.S. Arena Open Championships twice, as well as countless tournaments on the grass field all the way up to the 20-goal level. Jared has represented the U.S.A. Polo Team all over the world, including in the Dominic Republic, India, and Australia, and also against England in the Westchester Arena Cup.
