our history

Garrett Field Polo sits on approximately 130 acres of land just off historic Military Road in Slidell, LA where Andrew Jackson’s army marched toward the legendary Battle of New Orleans (1815).

Proof of early inhabitants surround Military Road by means of grave sites dated back to the 1800’s. Back in 1959, a distinguished local businessman by the name of Bill Garrett purchased this 130 acre plot of land for his wife, Ruth, and their two daughters, Debra and Billie. His plan was simple, create a sanctuary for his family tucked away in the quaint countryside outside New Orleans with plenty of room for their dream home, pool, grass airstrip and roaming horses. Billie began riding horses at a young age with her father, and her passion remains after all this time.

Today, Bill’s daughter Billie and her husband, Gran, carry on his legacy and not only still live on estate grounds where they raised their four children, but have decided to open its gates for special events, weddings, and polo. The couple are the same husband and wife team behind the internationally acclaimed venue Race + Religious, located on the riverfront in New Orleans and renowned for its rich history and unparalleled design details. In an equally impressive yet dissimilar manner, Garrett Field is also further distinguished by the couple’s signature flair for unusual artwork, artifacts collected on exotic travels and priceless antiques.

This time they let their imaginations run wild, incorporating one of their beloved passions, polo, and highlighting many Latin American “estancia” traditions along the way.
