Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Louise Eustis Hitchcock
Elected March 3, 1995

She is the clear proof that not all polo legends are made astride a horse. Louise Eustis Hitchcock was a passionate poloist long before women became equal to men on the field, and her legacy in the sport surpasses that of most men.

Wife of ten-goaler Thomas Hitchcock, Sr., and mother of the great Tommy Hitchcock Jr., Mrs. Hitchcock was a born leader and visionary. Her turf was the Aiken Preparatory School and the Meadow Lark Club for Boys where she coached and inspired future polo stars, themselves today members of the Polo Hall of Fame.

Few can be credited with producing as much polo excellence as Louise Hitchcock. No other woman has earned such a supreme stature in our sport.
