If you follow me on social media you know I attended the Victory Cup Farm Bash over the weekend in Patterson, NY. I was the winner of a giveaway on Instagram through The Richmond Prepster’s Blog. I was gifted two VIP Golden Mallet tickets to the event and I was thrilled to attend.
I have been to horse races in the past but never a polo match so I was excited to see what it was all about. There were many sponsors at the event so there was lots to do aside from watching polo. My boyfriend, Nick was super excited about the car show that was being held across the field. He’s super into cars so I was happy he got to see some cool ones.
I think my favorite part of the event was getting to pet the horses in-between matches. Horses are such beautiful animals. There were also a lot of vendors selling all your derby/preppy essentials. Among them were big derby hats, woven belts, and my favorite, the Zach Ryan Clothing Booth. I picked up one of his super cute solids tees as seen in my Instagram: here. Stay tuned to see how I styled this cute tee soon!
I met some pretty cool people at the event and I was so grateful for the experience. I was a little out of my comfort zone because there were so many of my favorite bloggers/entrepreneurs attending that I felt a little overwhelmed but everyone I met was super kind and really motivating. They really inspired me to keep at this whole blogging thing if its something I am really passionate about and to not be so hard on myself. Patience is key. I am grateful for the new friendships that came out of this weekend and I am excited to see where I’ll be for next year’s farm bash. It was truly the best party of summer!
