Jeff Hall is an excellent example of the All-American story—transcending to the world of polo. While he was raised in Santa Barbara and Houston, Hall started riding horses at the tender age of four in Indio, where his father was a passionate polo sponsor—you may have heard the family name if you own equestrian properties in the area. By age seven, Jeff was clear on his dream of becoming a polo player, and by age 12, started playing professionally.
One of the few highly rated players from the United States, Hall is considered one of the best polo players in the world. The 7-goaler has since won nearly every trophy in the country, including the prestigious U.S. Open with C-Spear in 2003. He won the Bronze Cup in Sotogrande, Spain and is one of few American players to have played in the renowned Argentine Open.
Hall’s career includes a long list of other wins, including the 2005, 2011 and 2012 America’s Cup, and was honored as MVP during the 2011 tournament. He is the eight-time winner of the USPA Silver Cup, the Cartier Cup in 2013, the Chile vs. USA International Polo Cup in 2013, England vs. USA International Polo Cup Winner in 2012, the Philip Iglehart Cup in 2012, the Pacific Coast Open Winner in 2009, and the Joe Barry Memorial Winner in 2010 and 2006, among other notable tournaments.
In 2011, Hall was tapped to be a brand ambassador for the luxury Swiss watchmaker, Piaget, and was also selected to be a member of the Audi Polo Team.
Jeff considers his home Houston, where he enjoys life on his ranch, Old Pueblo, with his wife, Michelle, and their son, Luke. During the Palm Beach polo season, they live in Wellington, Florida, a popular site for equestrian properties. He breeds and raises many of his own horses, including Sparkle, the horse awarded Best Playing Pony in the 2011 America’s Cup final.
