MTA Harlem Line from Grand Central to Patterson. If taking the train please inquire ahead of time if there is a driver in the group who can offer a pick up. Otherwise please schedule a taxi in advance as Uber and other car service apps do not have good coverage in this area.
Patterson is close to Pawling and RCF where we can arrange general riding lessons, if you want to make a day of riding, reach out and we can book a lesson for you ahead of polo! Las Mañanitas is a wonderful and fun Mexican restaurant for a fun Friday night dinner after polo, make sure to reserve ahead as they get very busy.
