Polo America will present its 2019 Wellington Barn Tour to benefit the Semper Fi Fund on Saturday, March 16.
Starting at 8 a.m., luxury buses will depart every 30 minutes to tour four incredible barns. These million-dollar-plus barns are never open to the public. It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see behind the gates of four magnificent horse farms.
The four barns are the Santa Rita Polo Farm, Black Watch, Bourns Sport Horses and Mida Farms. In addition to the barn tour, attendees will be given tickets to a 3 p.m. polo game at the Grand Champions Polo Club. The cost is $55 per person.

Black Watch features a 24-stall barn with an old-world European charm. Attention to detail is everywhere from padded floor mats in the stalls to custom water spigots to the antique chandeliers to a video system allowing owners to see each stall 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world.
Bourns Sport Horses Barn has all the facilities that both horses and clients require for luxurious day-to-day training. The barn has 28 stalls, eight wash racks, three tack rooms, two laundry rooms, an Aqua Equine Treadmill, seven Kraft Horse Walkers, a grass derby field and a sand arena.
The Semper Fi Fund is one of America’s highest-rated charities. It is dedicated to providing urgently needed resources and support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. armed forces and their families.
