My First Polo Day

How Polo is the new Yolo

British Polo Day celebrated it’s 60th event, but for me it was a first, and an honour to witness the world’s No. 1 male and female polo players competing on the same grass. This was also the farthest I’ve ever been on the River Thames, cycling all the way from London to the lush Black Bears Polo Club at the River Ground, near the lovely town of Henley-on-Thames.

Come to think of it, I’ve never been on a horse in my life, too. Growing up in Israel horses weren’t a major attraction. British Polo Day were nice enough to give me a ball and stick to run around the grass.
