British Polo Day… Chukkers of Fun

My friend Nancy and I had a blast recently with our friend and professional polo player, Ardeshir Radpour at British Polo Day at Will Rogers State Park.

I love what Ardeshir says about polo:  “It’s about horsemanship first and the game second.”

These sturdy little horses are inspiring to watch.  They are truly professional athletes, with giant hearts and competitive spirits.

If you’ve never seen polo, I encourage you to check it out – the crowds are fun and welcoming and the game is fast-paced and exciting.

British Polo Day has grown to encapsulate a network of 10 annual events, spanning Abu Dhabi, Australia, China, Dubai, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, Singapore, Sumba Island (Indonesia), Thailand and the US.

It is the only international polo network of its kind.
