As part of our hunt’s online auction, we got a donation to from a polo school for an intro to polo lesson. I’ve agreed to bid on it with a friend . . . I actually think that polo looks scary when played at speed (this coming from a foxhunter!) but it’s something that I think would be a lot of fun to try.
Years ago, I lived outside of Cleveland. The town next to us had a polo field and it was easy to catch a game. I knew several of the players and had a lot of respect for their skill and their determination.
I doubt I’ll ever get beyond the intro lesson but doesn’t it sound like fun? The school even provides the equipment and the ponies, so no worries about how Freedom would react to having me swing a mallet!
I’d also like to ride a reining horse sometime. I’ve seen them in action and that also looks like a blast.
What about you? Which equestrian discipline would you like to try if you had the chance?
