What is the LeCompte/Kalaway Landowners Cup? It’s one of the coolest and most unique things happening in the Barrington area so, if you’re looking for something fun to do, why not load the family in the car and join us!
The purpose of this annual tournament is to celebrate the landowners in Barrington Hills who allow the community’s riding trails to cross portions of their private properties.
The President of the Barrington Hills Polo Club, John Rosene, says, “Because of them, if you live anywhere in Barrington Hills, you can climb on a horse at your house and visit anyone in the community on horseback. That is one of the core components of what makes Barrington Hills a unique equestrian community.”
There will be much more than just polo to watch at the tournament today. You’ll see the Parade of Hounds, the Lake Run Clydesdales, the Stomping of the Divots and a Tailgate Competition. Plus, there will be prizes given to the ladies wearing the best hats, so this is a once-a-year experience that’s really special in the Barrington area and we have the full schedule of today’s events…
- Noon:Pre-Game ShowParade of Hounds by the Fox River Valley Hunt Club/Concord Hounds plus Fox River Valley Pony Club Quadrille
- 12:30 pm: Battle of the Sexes Polo Match & The Ladies vs. The Gentlemen
- 2:30 pm: LeCompte/Kalaway Landowners Cup Polo Match & The Harrington Family vs. Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC
