About Erica

Born of a polo player and immersed in the sport from day one, Erica personifies polo and is one of its most passionate ambassadors. Arguably the leading female polo player of her generation, she started riding horses at age 2, playing polo at 8 and competing in USPA events at 10. Erica’s parents, John and Chris Gandomcar, founded the Denver Polo Club in 1986 and raised her in the sport, lifestyle, and business of polo. Erica embraces this family history and legacy with pride and travels the world, competing professionally. She also promotes polo as both a player and a manager of the Cottonwood Riding Club – home to the Denver Polo Club, which has become legendary within the Rocky Mountain region and is now under her leadership along with her sister Tara. Erica studied and played intercollegiate polo at Colorado State University, earning Regional All-Star and All-American status each of the four years she played for the team. In her first year with the team, CSU won the Regional Championship and placed second in the National Championship. Erica has traveled the world playing polo and is now a part of the USPA Government. She was elected as circuit governor and also is the head the Women’s Committee, she also sits on a few other committees within the association and loves being so active. Her newest project is The Women’s International Polo Network. Her vision for the future of polo is grand and she hopes to bring polo to the mainstream and bring all polo players together.
