Rhoda Ochoa replied to Walter Pike's discussion Use of the whip.
"Yeah, that sounds right. I agree about the whip length as well, but it's too much length for me. Will see if the 36" works out."

Want Polo to attract more Players, be more Accessible, grow as a sport? Land is the Word.

Posted on February 5, 2011 at 15:00 0 Comments

Face it, horses and horse activities are being pushed out in a lot of places.  In most places, land is probably the biggest issue facing the horse community as a whole, and with the huge playing fields, and large numbers of horses involved in polo even at the lower levels, that goes double or triple for us.  Correction, affordable, usable, flat, land.
