The volunteers of Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue & Retirement are hoping any rain forecast for Sunday holds off until after the Polo match at the Fairfield Polo Club, 9420 S. Broadway in Haysville. Spectators will get to see a fast-paced polo match, meet some of the adoptable and adopted horses from Rainbow Meadows, and enjoy concessions by Truffles Catering.
Admission is $5 per person and $20 per carload.The event starts at Noon, with halftime activities that will include the traditional divot dance, complete with complimentary champagne provided by match sponsor BlackWatch Capital, LLC. Rainbow Meadows will host a hat competition for those who want to put their creative side to work.
In addition, there will be a table of items that will be drawn for at the end of the match. Visitors can purchase drawing tickets and drop them in the box of the item they most want to win. Winners must be present to claim their drawing item. Proceeds of the drawings will go to help care for the nearly 40 horses in Rainbow Meadows' care.
