  • Brief Summary: I will begin by explaining how I could already horse-ride and so when the sports fayre was held in fresher’s week, I decided to join the Polo team. Then I will have a few images of the team, and the polo ponies, along with rules/diagrams and descriptions of the game. I will describe nasty accidents I have had from the sport but also show the exciting side of it too!
