Polo Practice


"We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble, animal to ride upon its back." ~Peter Gray


"Courage, wisdom born of insight and humility, empathy born of compassion and love, all can be bequeathed by a horse to his rider." ~Charles de Kunffy



"Gypsy gold does not clink and glitter. It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark."
~saying of the Gladdagh Gypsies of Galway

I've been hoping to get the opportunity to do a polo shoot at some stage. The season is well and truly finished for now and won't be starting up again until later in the year. But I was fortunate enough to be able to catch these guys during a practice session one Sunday in late April.

The full series can be seen on my website.
