In the hot June sunshine, this was a touch of glamour to grace this wonderful, grandioso horse establishment. The day began with a precession of classic cars, followed by the equally graceful polo teams.
The pace was fast and furious, not for the faint hearted, which made this a compelling game to watch, as well as, to play.
Between the 7 minutes sessions of the matches (or as it is called in polo, “chukkas”), the riders and horses (or “polo ponies”, which they are, being a special breed) took fully deserved refreshments.
Then back to the action, vibrant, full of tension and passion…formula 1 on four legs!
