As the 12-goal season wraps up, Santa Barbara will see two weeks of rest for the ponies, players, and fields, but the action will start again soon. This year, 20-goal polo will return to Santa Barbara, with the Robert Skene Trophy, the America Cup™, the Silver Cup® and the Pacific Coast Open, all of which are guaranteed to offer thrilling and competitive polo.
