After having dipped its toe into the water on Camden’s equine scene last spring, the second annual Aberdeen Polo Match, sponsored by Aberdeen Catery, returns to the historic Camden Polo Field for a match on Sunday, May 17. The horses and riders, pitting a pair of four-player teams made up of players from throughout the region, will take to the field for the first of six 7-1/2-minute chukkers at 1 p.m. The gates to the field open at 11 a.m. The Camden Polo Field, off North Broad Street (U.S. 521) in Camden’s Dusty Bend district, is the second-oldest active polo field in the United States with thousands of ponies having galloped over its expansive grass field, with riders in tow, smacking a plastic white ball for 117 years. The field was also the apple of developers’ eyes 16 years ago.
