Fresh off the farm never looked so rosy, especially when Premier Models, Coconut Cheeks and Hawaii Polo Life decide to sunset together. Introducing, The Polo Experience, Hawaii Polo Life’s most stately way to say “Mahalo” to those who have partnered with the youthful brand since its inception. This lux experience gives Hawaii Polo Life sponsors, partners and certain influencers, an opportunity to experience the basics of polo while keeping it, “Island Style.” On this sublime afternoon Stephanie Lii, owner of Coconut Cheeks (who also saddled up) provided bikini tops for models to pair with our optic white HPL Short. We had models and influencers Leah Rose from Florida and Hawaii Local, Brittan Byrd dressed for the occasion.

Owner of Premier Models, Doug Lange, showed a natural athletic attraction to the sport and is now a junkie who has since returned to the farm to ride again. Will we see him on polo field in 2020?

Founder Chris Dawson explains his vision for the program. “My goal is to give key business partners the opportunity to connect with the horses, and furthermore connect with the sport. This is the best way for us to share the experience with others and organically grow interest in the sport, which would hopefully turn interest into the non-profit and the brand.”

Other leaders in the community who shared in this experience were musician, Landon McNamara. We had professional surfer, Jamie Mitchell.  The General Manager of The Kahala Hotel and Resort, Gerald Glennon.  The Director of Communications for The Harris Agency, Paul Skellon.  Owner of EPR, Erika Kauffman.  Model and actress, Diana Chavez.  Owner of Power Yoga Hawaii, Dorian Wright.
