Mandarina is thrilled to announce its partnership with one of the most acclaimed polo clubs in North America.  Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club is now the sister club of Aspen Valley Polo Club, offering members exclusive benefits at both clubs. Members will enjoy access to reserve VIP areas, complimentary access to all facilities and member pricing on equestrian activities, including boarding opportunities, priority reservations and more. They will also enjoy members-only access to all tournaments and events. As part of the partnership, the clubs will host jointly sponsored tournaments twice a year, with a summer event in Aspen and a winter event at Mandarina.

 

The two clubs celebrated their first joint event over the weekend, with Mandarina sponsoring the Mount Sopris Cup at Aspen Valley Polo Club. It was the first time the Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club players took the field as teams in a tournament, with the Mandarina Black team advancing to the finals to play Tonkawa, another team making its summer polo debut in Sunday’s championship game, covered by Condé Nast. Tonkawa defeated Mandarina 13-11 to capture the Mount Sopris Cup. The tournament awards were presented by Ricardo Santa Cruz, Partner of Mandarina and his sister, Cindy Santa Cruz, Equestrian Director at Mandarina.

 

The Mount Sopris Cup is a two-day tournament featuring six teams and named after the impressive peaks of the Elk Mountains, which serve as the picturesque backdrop of the Aspen Valley Club. After tournament play on Saturday, members of the Aspen club were invited to a private VIP dinner with the Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club players. Mandarina sponsored the VIP Tent for Sunday’s Mount Sopris Championship Day, featuring open bar, gourmet Mexican fare and a Veuve Clicquot divot stomp.

 

“Mandarina was proud to sponsor and play in the Mount Sopris Cup. Not only was this the first event since announcing our partnership with Aspen Valley Polo Club, but also the debut of the Mandarina polo team,” said Ricardo. “We look forward to many more events, sharing the benefits of this partnership with our members and welcoming members of the Aspen Valley Polo Club to our world-class facilities in Mexico.”

 

Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club is one of many private amenities enjoyed by residents and guests of One&Only Mandarina, One&Only Mandarina Private Homes and Rosewood Mandarina. The club will feature state-of-the-art facilities, including a 30,000-square-foot jumping arena, a 13,000-square-foot dressage arena, two tournament-sized polo fields, a polo lounge, 60 stalls with attached runs and an equine veterinary hospital with a surgical site. Situated within the Flatlands of Mandarina, the club is surrounded by miles of soft, sandy beach, soaring mountain peaks, lush agricultural land and leafy, tropical jungle, located less than one hour north of Puerto Vallarta in Riviera Nayarit.
