One of the most affectionate ponies in our string, Juno is a lively and responsive mare. She has a solid hitting platform, but teaches riders to be attuned to their riding, and to use body cues. She always searches people’s pockets for treats, and often uses humans as personal face scratching posts.
Kamikaze is a fiery chestnut mare. Although she can be a challenging ride, she’s athletic, fast, and handy. She is especially great in the arena and is former women’s captain, Laura Hansen’s, favorite horse.
Voted the Men’s Best Playing Pony at the 2011 Western Regionals, Margarita responds perfectly to the slightest cues. Affectionately referred to as “MooMoo” or “dairy cow” because of her distinctive facial markings, Margarita is a favorite among our experienced players.
Formerly a Cal Poly pony, this quiet thoroughbred mare has done well with the Stanford Team. She was nominated best playing pony for the men’s team at Pre-Regionals in 2013 and is very responsive.
Mimosa was a women’s team horse and won many “Best Playing Pony” awards. This hot little mare was very sensitive and full of energy. Mimosa was the “head mare” in the pasture and bossed all the other ponies around. Although she had a feisty attitude towards all the other ponies, she likes to cuddle with people. Mimosa passed away in February of 2015; the team misses her very much.
Possessed of a beautiful mahogany coat and a sturdy rump (and sometimes described as the inspiration for Sir Mix-A-Lot’s ‘Baby Got Back’), Stout is a solid and easygoing teacher for our less experienced members. With the right encouragement, Stout is a powerhouse in the arena, known for her strong, commanding bumps. She also makes a smooth and solid field pony, and is a reliable member of our string.
YJ is an older mare with a lot of experience. She is very steady going, which makes it easier to hit the ball. She is very patient with all the new riders.
Jack is a solid horse both for Newbies and Oldies. Won most handsome viewing pony every year of his membership in the club. The original of SPC’s “Jack” trifecta
One of our youngest horses, she is still green and mostly unknown by the team. Our coaches are working to make her a great polo pony and we have high hopes for her in coming years.
One of the three new geldings in the pasture. Great for our oldies, he has a powerful stride and loves to hang around the fence whenever Skyy or Patron is taken out
Named by alumni Eric Schloss, Patrón has been an excellent contribution to the team.
A great big white gelding, Skyy is a wonderful horse for everyone on the team. He likes to take his time with his feed and has a great cantor. He loves treats and generally gets along with the other horses in the pasture. While not as beautiful as Gamut, he has a grace about him that can’t be matched.
Gin & Tonic
Also known as G&T or Ginny, this mare came in with the Gelding Trio. Identifiable by the bright star on her face, this mare is a smooth ride and really responsive, especially in the field. She’s attuned to everything going on around her, and plays the line well. She held her own at Regionals and likes to trot up to you when you catch horses for sets.
A beautiful chestnut, Rusty is our “rocking horse” and belongs to coach Mike Zeliger. His springtime coat resembles a shining penny and is amazingly soft. He’s a good newbie horse, but has real spunk and attitude in our varsity games.
Known for her distinctive eyes and blaze, Elivis is one of our more advanced horses.
A real trooper, Jaeger has been recovering from a near death experience since the fall. He’s made amazing strides in his recovery and the team is glad he can be out in the pasture to work his leg.
