In PoloHUB we talked with Jenny Luttrrell-Benardoni about the plans for the 2024 Polo Season with Cotterel in USA and Argentina.
What can you tell us about Cotterell? What does it mean to you?
Cotterel is our home in Declo Idaho. We have put a lot of passion and hard work into creating a beautiful polo destination for sponsors and pros. We have 3 fields, exercise track, 180 stalls, quincho and a 25 room lodge for our guests to enjoy.
What is the season like at Cotterel Polo Farm and what do you expect for this year?
We play 10-16 goal polo 6 days a week June through August. We like to play in the mornings leaving the afternoons free for exploring the area, fishing the snake river, hiking, stick and balling, etc..
We end the week with a big asado in the quincho with all the pros, grooms and guests.
What are the plans for this year for the team?
We plan to play the polo tour in Argentina this spring, then we will return home in May to get ready for the summer polo in Declo Idaho. We look forward to welcoming back our professionals Jejo Taranco, Santiago Stirling, Santiago Von Wernick, Tommy Alberdi, and Gabby Saccullo for a fun action packed summer. We will host 6 tournaments including the Skaggs Memorial, Wild Wild West Tournament, Declo Days, Independence Day Tournament, Six S Ranch Tournament, and the Last Chance Tournament.
You come to La Dolfina a lot to play their tournaments. What does La Dolfina and Adolfo Cambiaso means to you?
I am blessed and thankful that La Dolfina has become my second home. Adolfo and the entire organization has made me feel welcome and valued. I have learned so much about breeding and I have improved my polo game. I could not be happier! The organization of the tournaments are exemplary and they make the patrons feel like they are appreciated! There is no better place to play and enjoy polo!
