The Management

Francesca Finato – Owner – Club Manager

Francesca took over ownership of South Bay Polo this year. Originally from Palo Alto Ca, “Frenchie” attended Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and played 3 years for the women’s intercollegiate polo team. After college, she pursued a career in Construction management, but her passion for polo pulled her away and she began working with the acclaimed Erik Wright of Wrightway Polo RPC in Menlo Park, Indio and Burbank Ca. Erik taught her the intricacies of running a club, teach new and experienced players, and fine tuning horses for optimal play. She also attended USPA Instructor’s Forums where she learned new teaching and development skills.

Frenchie knows how to run a Polo Club.  She brings superior teaching techniques and club management skills.
