The United States Polo Association Rocky Mountain Polo Championship is slated for this Sunday at Stout Ranch near New Castle.

The Rocky Mountain Polo Championship’s roots date back more than 100 years.

A Londonderry Irishman, F.H.A. (Hervey) Lyle, learned to play polo in India. He shared Walter Devereux’s love of horses and they became friends in 1890. Devereux’s associate, Jerome B. Wheeler, had employed Lyle in Glenwood Springs to act as exclusive agent for Jerome Park Coal Company.

Lyle and Devereux, both championship-caliber players, formed a Glenwood polo and racing association, holding their first match in 1890.
