Women in Polo UK

Women In Polo (WIP) is a recently formed charity aiming to promote opportunities in polo for females who want to play and/or work in the sport.  WIP has been started by two mums, Sarah Wood and Nikki Jacob, of polo playing daughters who have experienced first- hand how hard it is for girls to get decent opportunities in the sport without it costing a fortune.   

‘Georgie got her first taste of polo in the Pony Club’ says Sarah, ‘.... and was hooked.  However, even though the Pony Club…

Gaucho International Polo - March 21st 2012

I was fortunate recently to pay a return visit to the thoroughly exciting HPA Gaucho International Polo Tournament that took place at London's O2 Arena on 21st March.  England were led to victory via penalties by Captain Jamie Morrison and his team. In this photo, as commentator Louisa Dawnay commented on my photograph on another site "Nacho is going to goal and Jamie is 'riding him off the line of the ball'... a legitimate play and Jamie was…

Argentina Facts - Don't forget to ask me the Camino Real Polo & Country Club

Argentina Facts: If you have any questions please contact Contact kirk@sigillum.co.uk



There are many misconceptions regarding Argentina and my job here isn’t really to dispel all of them or to enter into a political debate. Argentina is seriously underestimated as a country, an economy, a culture and a place to visit.



Given what is happening in the rest of the developed world the attention, along with foreign investment, continues to divert…

The Amazones of Ladies Polo

If women already used to play polo in China under the Tang dinasty (IIIrd century), the high goals competitions specialy dedicated to them have been developped less than 10 years ago.

Thus, in may and june 2010, was held the first LADIES POLO TOUR in south and central America (Argentina, Brazil etc.). POLOCONSULT has also been an important support to the femnin polo in Argentina since it originated the first feminin polo open being part of the official season of the ARGENTINIAN…

Fluid Replacement & Hydration for Polo Players

Polo Players can lose between 1,5- 2,5 litres of sweat during an intense 6 chukka game, particularly in hot and humid conditions. This amount of fluid loss will certainly have a negative effect on their performance.

Ideally to counteract dehydration, the players should consume 200-400 ml (7-14 oz) of cold water or a suitable carbohydrate solution 5 to 10 minutes prior to the start of their game or training. During the intervals, they should try to drink another 300-500 ml (10-17oz) of…

Physical Training for Polo

Years ago I heard a lot of polo players said that they don’t need to train, that it is all about being born in a country side family and spend as much time as possible on the horse. They used to think that a fitness training program for polo is something weird. But if you check on the last ten Palermo Argentinean Polo Open you will realize that more and more every player take his Personal Trainer with them. Why?…

A s someone in thrall to polo all my life, starting with my forebears to playing the game in my youth to twenty years as a polo historian and journalist, let me say at once: Polo: The Nomadic Tribe, (hereafter Nomadic Tribe) stands a tangent to every other polo book to come my way.

I am in search of...

I am in search of polo ponies that are no longer needed and retired from polo. I believe that polo ponies are the best lesson horses and children's horses because polo ponies have been there and done that type of horse. I need several for EAP/EAL (equine assisted psycho-therapy/equine assisted learning. EAP and EAL are programs to help adult and children through challenges and learn how to cope with difficulties in life with the use of horses. 

I commend all you polo pony trainers and…

Hi, 

I am coming out with the BBC to film in Argentina on Friday and am keen to meet up with some great English speaking polo playing families who we may be able to film for our series about families and parenting.

 

If you are able to email me directly I would be more than grateful.

Just getting our feet wet

It's been a month now, working away under the Texas sun.  We've finally gotten all our paperwork in with Texas State to be part of their recreational clubs, hopefully moving to sports clubs by the end of the year.

 

I had no idea what we were getting into when the idea of a collegiate polo club was presented to me a few weeks back.  I have some equestrian experience, albeit limited, and our two other current members had none.  We threw ourselves in the saddles, grabbed some…

How to hit a good near side (Spanish) Consejos para un buen revés

Una de las inquietudes más comunes de los nuevos jugadores de nuestra clínica es el tema del revés hacia adelante, el tiro más temido y el más débil. En primer lugar, por qué decimos que es el más débil? En realidad cuando se ejecuta correctamente, es un tiro potente, en general lo hacemos más débil porque cargamos toda la responsabilidad en el brazo. Pero si hacemos una buena rotación de hombros y cadera combinado con el paso del caballo concentraremos mayor potencia en el…

Are you ready to get in the saddle??

Learn polo in Argentina and there's no messing around. If you can ride you'll be put straight on a pony, polo stick in hand. At Palo Alto Polo you will be under the watchful eyes of Leo and Georgie - who only reinforce the assumption that all Argentine polo players are both charming and handsome. A day at the ranch will take the form of stick and ball (hitting a ball around the polo field) in the morning, and if you're up to it, chukkas in the afternoon. Hitting the ball at…
