Polo You Say?
Imagine; thundering hooves whipping down a grassy field, athletic riders strategically maneuvering their mounts around and between other horses while at the same time keeping their polo mallet at ready to strike the small white ball that is their ticket to victory. Meanwhile, at the sidelines, spectators, dressed in everything from formal attire to flip-flops and tees, are anticipating every move and cheering on their most loved team.
Polo is played on a 300 by 160 yeard grass field with a goal on each end. Riders, on two teams, attempt to hit a small white ball while on horseback, with a polo mallet, from one teammate to the another or into their goal. Competitive polo matches can be found in more than 80 countries and is viewed by more than 50 million people each year. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, and Great Britain are among the the top Countries that host matches, bringing in crowds that contend those of other professional sporting events in the United States. While polo is thought to be thousands of years old, it first entered the United States in 1876 via American Publisher James Gordon Bennett.
