Hotel Tour – Kings Head Hotel Cirencester

On my recent trip to Cirencester, U.K. for the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International match, I was spoiled with a night’s stay at the Kings Head Hotel and it was nothing short of wonderful. After a full afternoon of polo at the Cirencester Park Polo Club, the Kings Head Hotel invited me for dinner and I invited my UK family Sam and Tom along. We had a very yummy 3-course meal, Sam and I went for salads and the sea...

Kings Head Hotel Ladies International Match – England vs USA

An exciting day for women’s polo, Cirencester Park Polo Club was host to the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International Match. Team USA had travelled across the pond to meet the Swarovski England Team in a heated 4 chukker battle. I had great chats with Tamara Fox and Nina Clarkin, who are #SistersInMallets and in real life as well. These two have been playing polo together and against each other for over 20 years, with only a few years missed due...

The Cartier Queen’s Cup is one of the highest rated tournaments in the U.K. and in the world.

Cartier Queen’s Cup Semifinals 2017 – La Indiana and RH Polo on to Finals on Sunday

Driving down the lane towards Guards Polo Club, nestled in the Royal Windsor Great Park, I felt butterflies. Watching high-goal polo does that to me, especially when friends are on the field. Michael Bickford was actually one of the key people who introduced me to polo 7 years ago in Argentina and I have seen him play in 4 different countries. Last year he and his La Indiana team made it to the final of the Queen’s Cup and were...

Chestertons Polo in the Park Final

Sunday is Family day at Chestertons Polo in the Park and the polo pitch was transformed by Sharky & George and Eddie Catz into a children’s wonderland for the Little Hooves Kids Club and a polo match on bouncy ponies. (we, of course, did not see this as we were slow in getting up Sunday morning after Saturday’s fun in the sun). We did make it just in time for the first match, and I put my GoPro on my...

Ladies Day at Chestertons Polo in the Park

Saturday is famously Ladies Day at Chestertons Polo in the Park and what a day it was. The park was packed with some 16.000 people ready to enjoy polo (and party) in the centre of London. The glorious sunshine definitely helped and inspired some gorgeous outfits. We spotted many florals and summer dresses, pastel colours and interesting sunglasses, it was a #MyPoloStyle party and everyone was invited! I have spotted a few on Instagram I felt needed mentioning here. I...

Chestertons Polo in the Park – International Match Day

It was Friday the 9th of June, the sun was shining and there was an electric feeling in the air, caused by our excitement for Chestertons Polo in the Park. Two of my best friends, Cecilie (nickname Tiller) and Sophie (nickname Ponti) and I had travelled from Copenhagen to London the day before. This is now the fifth year we have met up in London, from all corners of the world, to enjoy a weekend of polo fun in central...

Getting ready for Chestertons Polo in the Park

Chestertons Polo in the Park is only three days away!!! And I am clearly very excited. I love this event and travel from near and far every year to attend. You can read more about my previous experiences on the links at the bottom of this page. When people ask me why I love Chestertons Polo in the Park so much, I beam with excitement and smile from ear to ear and say “It is just so much fun!” and...

Polo Valley – Food for the body, mind and soul

I can without a doubt say that Polo Valley in Sotogrande is one of my favorite places on earth. Everything from the enchanting nature, the view, the people, the horses, including the new addition to the family little Soto, the house, everything about the place just makes my heart leap with joy.   I stayed at Polo Valley for a week last summer and loved every minute, the only bad part was having to leave. Now coming back was the...

Marbella Club Equestrian Center

Marbella is one of those places that immediately draws your thoughts towards beaches, fancy restaurants and a general feeling of luxury and well-being, and the Marbella Club is the quintessence of old-glamour for modern day life. My brother now lives in the beautiful town, so hopefully I will have the opportunity of visiting often. On this visit, we discovered an amazing place I had never been to; the Marbella Club Equestrian Center. A short 20 min drive from the Marbella Club Hotel,...

FIP Zone A Playoffs at International Polo Club Palm Beach

Then we all headed over to IPC for the final of the FIP (Federation of International Polo) Zone A playoffs. 23 polo players representing their respective countries of USA, Mexico and Guatemala had been training together for a month to compete for a...

USPA Eastern Challenge – La Indiana vs Dutta Corp

113th US Open Polo Championship Final – Witnessing History in the making

The US Open Polo Championship is really one of the highlights of the international polo calendar, and definitely the crown jewel of the polo season in Wellington, Florida, USA. The championship has been played at the International Polo Club Palm Beach since 2004. I have been lucky enough to attend and witness the exciting final three years in a row now, and this year was definitely a nail-biter. (read the 2016 match here and the 2015 match here) The final...

Angela doing yoga on her horse Snowy

Horse Yoga

I love Instagram, there is no hiding that fact and one of the biggest reasons why I love Instagram (social media in general), is that sometimes I come across profiles of amazing people, who live on the complete opposite side of the planet and I would probably never have crossed paths with them in real life, but online we are all connected somehow and the world is tiny and very accessible. So a while ago I found Angela’s account: Horse_yoga_girl...
