But, did Victorian England see the birth of polo? Turns out, it did not. Not even close.  Read the Article

HARTLAND -- It’s often said that hitting a baseball is the hardest thing is sports. But Ryan Braun or Jonathan Lucroy don’t have to square up a pitch with a thousand-pound creature between their legs.  "Most people that haven’t watched it," Milwaukee Polo Club member Thomas Esser said.

Town on Merton — Courtney Rohs pulls up in a 4x4 with a trailer behind it that shimmies from side to side. A haze of dust rises from the dirt road, but the scent of hay still coats the senses. Sunlight strikes the field through cotton ball clouds and the wind pulls at her messy bun one strand of hair at a time. Read more at JSOnline.com

The Milwaukee Polo Club has been in operation for almost 54 years. In that span, the organization has gone from playing in total anonymity to drawing good crowds at its Town of Merton fields located on Highway VV between North Lake and Merton.
