Memo Gracida has kicked-off his California summer clinic schedule with the 4th of July LaLa Herradura Polo Classic, Santa Ynez, California Herradura Classic. This was the first of his three week-long clinics being held at Piocho Ranch in beautiful Santa Ynez, California. The Classic finished off with the final matches on the 4th of July followed by a trophy presentation and bar-b-que. Participants played with top professional players from around the world, including Memo, Jesse Bray, Paco de Narvaez, and Julio Gracida, just to name a few. Players were graciously awarded trophies from clinic sponsor La Martina.

Memo has had many years of success with his La Herradura Classics and numerous top sponsors in the game today started their polo careers as attendees at these clinics, including Lyndon Lea, John Muse, and Tom Barrack. Participants of all levels are able to improve their polo careers with one-on-one coaching from Gracida and practices and matches surrounded by helpful professional players. There is no better way to learn the game and/or improve your skills than in the hands of the maestro himself and with his top-quality polo organization.

There is still availability in his next two La Herradura Classics. Both will be held at Piocho Ranch in Santa Ynez, California. The dates are as follows:

July 25th to July 31st

August 22nd to August 28th
