WELCOME TO BLOOMFIELD POLO FROM WILL AND TAB ORTHWEIN
Will and Tab manage Bloomfield Farm and Bloomfield Polo Club. Will grew up in Atlanta, GA where he played polo with his father, brother and extended family members and Tab grew up riding horses in Vermont. They met at Skidmore College (at the barn of course) and have been together ever since. Will and Tab both played for Skidmore Polo and remain active with coaching and managing the Skidmore Polo teams. Will was named Intercollegiate Player of the Year in 1992 and was also selected to play on the Intercollegiate All-star Team that played in Buenos Aires, Argentina on the #2 field at Palermo. Will has played polo all over the country in tournaments up to the 16 goal level. Will and Tab played for many years at Saratoga Polo Association up to the 12-goal level and enjoy sharing their love of the sport with others.
WELCOME BACK, TIGER KNEECE!
We are excited to welcome Tiger Kneece and his family back to Bloomfield Farm for a third season! Tiger will be working with us again as manager of Bloomfield Polo and head instructor of our lesson program and coaching league offered in partnership with the Equine Polo Instructional Center (EPIC). At the height of his career Tiger carried a 7-goal handicap. He has a great deal of polo experience on the field as well as in managment, coaching and lessons. We are so
happy to have Tiger with us again to share his enthusiasm and expertise and to build upon the foundation created over the past two years.
MEET THE GROUNDS CREW!
Bloomfield Farm is a labor of love for Will Orthwein who has envisioned the facility and conducts and oversees maintenance of the facility. Summer is an especially busy time where the knowledge expertise and assistance of club member Cullen Howe is a welcome addition! Cullen was instrumental in the creation of the full-size grass polo field that was added to the facility in the fall of 2021.
