American Polo Pioneer

(1937-2003)

Sue Sally Hale

     Polo's Grande Dame is an inspirational story about living an unthinkable dream. Raised in Hollywood, California, the daughter of an Oscar nominated screen writer and a prima ballerina, Sue Sally Hale yearned to join a sport that was reserved for men only. With no predecessor and no path to follow, she repeatedly broke down barriers and shattered glass ceilings, blazing a trail that would impact the future of her greatest passion, polo.
      At times disguised as a boy, Sue Sally doggedly played polo when and where she was allowed, persevering when she was neither wanted nor accepted, her chosen sport certainly not prepared for her.  "Can't" was not a word allowed in her dictionary.  A force of nature to be reckoned with, she was driven to pursue her dream come hell or high water.  With a passion for polo that guided and sustained her throughout her life, she lived incredible highs and debilitating lows. Through; wealth, poverty, joy, heartbreak, discipline, sacrifice and hard work, Sue Sally Hale became a legend.
