You will learn why and how these amazing animals are 80% of the sport of polo and how animal and human work together to race at 40 miles an hour and turn on a dime with the smallest of gestures. l will share with you part of my fun and excitement for the "Sport of Kings"! (guests are welcome to relax on the estate grounds for an hour after the talk) . Please note this experience is seasonal. From May to October only.
Horses!!! I love them. Everything about them actually. The way they smell, move and breath. They are amazing and strong animals with gentle spirits that don't like being bored! Human's helper for thousands of years. My family used to adopt retired race horses when I was younger. My adventuresome early teenage years were spent trying to break these guys into calmer amiable creatures. I would put on my junior football helmet, "leg up" and throw-care-to-the-wind until someone decided they were tired. Usually me! The sport of POLO is called "The Sport of Kings". Countries all around the world enjoy this invigorating and challenging sport. My wife surprised me with tickets to a polo match years ago...and I was hooked! Riding polo ponies, horses, is by far my favorite activity! Its fun to share this amazing sport with you!!! Peter
