As the 2015 Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show is sneaking around the corner, WSGA members and their families are making plans for the week. Despite the hustle and the bustle of the convention make sure to take some family time and enjoy the beautiful Big Horn area.
Prior to the convention the Big Horn Equestrian Center is having a practice polo game the afternoon of Wednesday the 3rd.
Polo became popular in the United States in the 1900’s. By 1989 there was 208 active polo clubs and 25 competitive polo colleges and universities according to the Polo Museum.
The site where the game will be held was established in 1985 on the Burns Ranch in the Big Horn area. The Big Horn Equestrian Center is a large part of the Big Horn history and culture. The Equestrian Center was created to honor and present “everything a horse can do”.
If you’re looking for an activity to pass time and would like to witness a hundred year old sport, with beautiful horses the practice game would be a great opportunity for the family.
Directions to the Big Horn Equestrian Center from Sheridan:
Go south on Coffeen (Highway 335) 6 miles toward the town of Big Horn, turn left onto Bird Farm Rd., (CR 28). Go 1.8 miles, turn right to stay on Bird Farm Rd. for 1.5 miles. BHEC is on your right at 352 Bird Farm Rd.
