  1. First let me say I am a subcriber to your GREAT magazine and want to pass on how very pleased I was to see your article on Polo. It is hardly ever mentioned in any magazines and is , I believe, the best tutor for riding I’ve experienced. You forget about riding and play the game. I am by no means a good polo player but have played in probably six games and love it. When I first started riding , at about 50, my brother-in-law introduced me to polo which scared me to death at first but once you get out on the field you love it. I recommend it to anyone, it’s great. Thank-you for the article and please follow up on it. Also, I very highly recommend all riders watch a high goal polo match, the horsemanship is absolutely amazing.
