The Art of Polo

The Vero Beach Polo Club proudly supports our local artists. Featured here is the wonderful work of Lila Blakeslee.


From my early exposure to polo during my time at Willow Bend Polo & Hunt Club in Plano, Texas to my years of spectating polo in Vero Beach, Florida, I have drawn inspiration for my art from this incredible team sport.


With a BFA in Drawing & Painting and a twenty year profession as an equestrian instructor, my understanding of the equine athlete and the riders that master their sport is a wonderful challenge to capture in a painting.


It is my love of these amazing animals and the riders that are passionate about the sport, that inspire my art!
