About Us

The Skull Valley Polo Club is part of a rural ranching community located just two hours north of Phoenix in Yavapai County, Arizona on the Van Dickson Ranch - and just 15 minutes from Prescott. In the early 1900’s the owner, Mr. James Van Dickson, raised polo ponies and leased them to Will Rogers and others in the California polo community, only to have them return as working ranch horses in the off season. Re-established in 2000 by C. Paul and Carolyn Harris as a USPA Border Circuit club, the Skull Valley Polo Club is now home to friendly summer 0-4 goal polo May – October. If you find yourself in Arizona, stop by for a few chukkers or bring a tailgate picnic and enjoy our club as a spectator. We welcome newcomers and old friends alike.
