The tragic loss of Team USPA member Lauren Biddle has shocked and saddened our polo family to the core. When the USPA first learned of her passing Sunday, October 21, Lauren was in New Zealand for a working and playing opportunity, yet her passing was non-polo related. Lauren was a promising young player who will be lovingly remembered by the polo community as a passionate horsewoman, animal lover, adventurer and friend who lived life to the fullest. Her fun-loving spirit has left its impact on many, and her legacy will live on through those who play the sport that she loved so much. Our hearts go out to the Biddle family. Please know that you are not alone in your grief and the entire polo family is here for you during this difficult time. A full tribute to Lauren will be published at a later date.
