Honoring the Polo Horse and the Need for Speed!

Polo is a love of excitement, skill and speed. There are few things more beautiful than watching a horse gallop at full speed across a field! The rhythmic sound of hooves dancing the dirt.  Debris spring to life when they machines leap forward! Nostrils flair while necks push to reach each step. The rider floats inches above the saddle in a gliding world wind.

Mankind began domesticating these animals around 10,000 years ago (1). Since then we have sought to harness and improve their power. In polo we seek to use this power in a competitive manner. That requires a lot, and I mean a lot, of training! You can see that hard work in their gait, dexterity, and responsiveness.

Escanaba Polo Mallet Company makes polo mallets!  Around 50% of profits go to orphans. Another 5-10% may be donated to horse rescues (or other related). EPMC is a good works kind of business.
