“Go Ligonier! Go Ligonier!”

The chant echoed from the children's activity tent during Polo for the Kids, held Saturday at the Richard E. Raizman Memorial Polo Field in Cook.

The youthful enthusiasm was appropriate, given that the event benefits children's scholarships at the Ligonier Valley YMCA.

The tried-and-true schedule included the opening parade of hounds from the Rolling Rock Hunt, led by huntsman Mark Stickley; the promenade of country-chic fashions along the sideline; plentiful food and drink; the halftime stomping of the divots; and, not incidentally, the excitement of the annual match between teams Ligonier and Dusseldorf.

Astride the ponies for Team Ligonier were Mark Powers, Justin Powers, Juliette Powers, Ken Fawcett and Mark Corradino.

Riding for the ultimately victorious Team Dusseldorf were Mike Groubert, Patrick Teroerde, Glenn Watterson, Glenn Watterson Jr., Dominic Gwyn-Jones and Andres Torres.

Calling the play-by-play was Coy Gupta.

Seen from the event committee were Dorothy Raizman, Fritz and Ulla Teroerde, Kris Samloff, Catherine Baxter Smith, Nancy Everson, Ben Wright and Scotty Nelson.

Under the tents were Sophie Mellon, Christina Henderson, Mark Robertshaw, Pat Wallace and Kim Dickert Wallace, Jim and Mary Louise Silvis, Tom Smith, Carol Wright, Charles III and Stephanie Fagan, Bert O'Neill, Terry Graft and Linda Brown and Don and Kim Kramer.

Also, the Rev. Bob Cummings, Karl and Bridget Horman, Joe and Connie Vella, George and Sue Welty, Doug and Jennifer Welty, Kristin Wilkins, Mary Matson, Priscilla Chavez, Ian Burkland, Gloria Eisaman, Pauline Douglas, Dee Gano and Barbara Ramm.
