Gates Gridley has been playing polo for over 17 years and has competed around the world.  He spent 4 years learning from former 7-goaler Joey Casey, where he broke yearlings, trained green horses, and played competitively. Gridley also manages the new arena polo phenomenon, Gladiator Polo. He worked on establishing the series in Wellington, Florida as well as organizing the competitions in Tryon, NC this summer.
