The 7:00 p.m. Saturday night Twilight Polo match on July 15th was especially poignant as it had the usual members of Team Battlefield, Kylie Golkosky and Morgan Burner, take the field along with Tyler Burdick riding in place of Austin Burdick, his twin brother who recently died unexpectedly at home in Flint Hill, Virginia.

Friends and family gathered to honor Austin as many remember him best, enjoying the sport and community of polo. The program from that evening reflects the thoughts of all who knew him: “Austin Burdick was an especially nice guy of great character and an amazing polo player. Everyone who watched him play could see his passion for the game. He was well loved and will always be remembered as a dedicated member of the Great Meadow Polo family.” ML
