Corey Schlom, The Arena Specialist
Installs cutting edge footing in both arenas at OC Polo
Can you believe it's been four years since we played our first games in the arenas at Rancho Silverado Stables? That is a whole lot of chukkers! With that comes natural wear and tear and it is standard practice to replace the dirt, or “footing” as it's called in the equestrian community. Corey Schlom, the Arena Specialist and owner at Circle S Ranch, has been responsible for the maintenance of the OC Polo arenas since he first installed them. When we first installed the footing, we were using a cutting edge product that had only been in one other polo arena in the country. Four years later it was time for a refresh and upon doing a little research, Corey was thrilled to learn that there was a newer state of the art sand mixture on the market that would eliminate dust, increase drying time (substantially!) and provide a considerably better surface for playing polo. Thank you to Corey and Mike for all your hard work to update our arenas!
