Sunday, June 17th marked a very important day in the English, and international, polo calendar, it was the final of the most sought-after of polo tournaments, the Cartier Queen’s Cup, played at Guards Polo Club in Windsor, on the Queen’s ground and in front of the Queen.

Queen’s Cup Semi-Finals 2018

Wednesday, June 13th was an important day for high goal polo in England, as the Semi-Finals for the Cartier Queen’s Cup was played out on the Duke and Queen’s grounds. Two fairly new teams in the English high goal took to the field for the first match, Park Place vs Valiente.  Park Place is new to the high goal scene and fairly new to the polo scene in general! Patron Andrey Borodin only started playing polo 3 years ago. Evidently,...

Kings Head Hotel Ladies International Match – England vs USA

An exciting day for women’s polo, Cirencester Park Polo Club was host to the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International Match. Team USA had travelled across the pond to meet the Swarovski England Team in a heated 4 chukker battle.

These two have been playing polo together and against each other for over 20 years, with only a few years missed due...

Cartier Queen’s Cup Semifinals 2017 – La Indiana and RH Polo on to Finals on Sunday

Driving down the lane towards Guards Polo Club, nestled in the Royal Windsor Great Park, I felt butterflies. Watching high-goal polo does that to me, especially when friends are on the field. Michael Bickford was actually one of the key people who introduced me to polo 7 years ago in Argentina and I have seen him play in 4 different countries. Last year he and his La Indiana team made it to the final of the Queen’s Cup and were...

Chestertons Polo in the Park Final

Sunday is Family day at Chestertons Polo in the Park and the polo pitch was transformed by Sharky & George and Eddie Catz into a children’s wonderland for the Little Hooves Kids Club and a polo match on bouncy ponies. (we, of course, did not see this as we were slow in getting up Sunday morning after Saturday’s fun in the sun). We did make it just in time for the first match, and I put my GoPro on my...

We spotted many florals and summer dresses, pastel colours and interesting sunglasses, it was a #MyPoloStyle party and everyone was invited! I have spotted a few on Instagram I felt needed mentioning here. I...

Sandbanks British Beach Polo

In my mind Beach Polo and Britain are not exactly a perfect match, especially not after the summer we’ve been having…But the stars aligned for the weekend of July 8th and 9th in Sandbanks, on the  Southern coast of England. The grandiose setup of the British Beach Polo Championship on the beach near Bournemouth along with warm weather and the occasional sun beam made up for a very fun social polo tournament, where the key word was exactly that: FUN!...

British Polo Gold Cup Final VIP Lunch

Sunday July 17th was an exciting day for all polo lovers in the UK, it was the final of the Jaeger- LeCoultre Gold Cup, the British Open.

These two powerful teams had been up against each other a...
