KNOCK, KNOCK !, WHO'S THERE ?



This morning, IT gently stroked my cheek …
In my car driving to the polo club, the signs of ITS presence were still there.
35 minutes afterwards, in the beautiful English countryside I could see that IT was still following me…

It’s when I was galloping on my horse, feeling ITS warm breath in my hair that I was finally sure : IT is definitely here. SPRING is here !
It is warm, it is bright, it is sunny and we are all happy…

 “Spring Champagne Challenge” – Ascot Park Polo Club 



My polo club, Ascot Park has organised a wonderful polo match to welcome it with Tarquin Southwell (one of the best arena polo player in the world, if you please…) and some others really good polo players from the polo club. As usual, the match was a ballet of speed, beauty and precision where the horses were the star of the show ! What an amazing tribute to the Spring !

Always playing for the good cause, Tarquin will be running the London Marathon for the children at Make-a-Wish Fondation tomorrow.  Good luck Tarquin !

    1. Best to do a "discovery lesson" in a group first then afterwards to take some lessons.
      Please call the manager Kathy Vivian on 01276 858545 to book a discovery.
      Thank you.

  4. I took a Discovery Lesson last year. It all happened in the ice rink like enclosure. It was fun, but I couldn't hit the ball. I am sure the horses were laughing loud seeing our lack of polo skills. I loved it anyway. You will have fun, Andrew. Charles

  5. Yes, the discovery are always on the Arena (the ice rink like enclosure...). But after a few lessons, you are playing on the grass which is different again... Did you do your Discovery at Ascot Park ? Thank you for your visit Charles. Sixte
