arena at International Polo Club. "I thought CP 101 was absolutely invaluable for our club," said Hannah Smith (University of Texas). "Speaking to the leadership of the USPA provided great insight for the process of running an intercollegiate polo team, and being given the opportunity to compare notes with the leaders of other teams really gave me new perspectives on how to run the Texas Polo Team." The University of Texas has been going through some growing pains over the last few years and is now settled in to play out of County Line Polo Club for the 2018- 2019 season. Texas Tech, a primarily student-run club, focuses on keeping members engaged to sustain the club for future generations. "Texas Tech Polo Club and I are extremely grateful to the USPA for hosting and inviting me out to the annual College Polo 101. The club has been dealing with some obstacles but with the aid of this program we have been able to resolve a multitude of these obstacles," said club president Hiram Gandara. "The structuring of the club and the ideas for fundraising were definitely the highlights of the weekend. They have already been implemented and shown a positive impact for TTPC. I must say that it was a great experience for myself as I was able to interact with officers from clubs around the nation and exchange ideas while expanding our knowledge about the sport we all love." We would like to thank the student representatives who took the time out of their school schedules to attend this event. A special thank you to the Museum of Polo & Hall of Fame, Tackeria, Tatos, Dr. Stephanie Colburn and USPA staff in making this a terrific event. Participants enjoyed getting to know each other and sharing ideas. POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N 25 #LIVEAUTHENTICALLY | USPOLO.ORG | @uspoloassn
