First days at Polo Valley – Living a Polo Dream

When Polo Valley invited me to come and experience the Residential Polo Course in order to review it I was ecstatic and over the moon! I had been eyeing their Instagram account and daydreaming of the beautiful place for a while, so when the opportunity arose I was on a plane to Malaga immediately. I arrived at Polo Valley in Sotogrande this past Sunday, and immediately felt at home. Everyone here is so welcoming and friendly and the settings are just gorgeous. Alvaro,...


Horseback Riding on the Beach in Fanø

Last weekend I had the most exhilarating experience. I was on the little island of Fanø visiting my dad. This island is situated off of the west coast of Denmark and it is so pretty and quaint, and very popular with tourists looking to connect with nature and chill out. We had been cycling around exploring and taking in the pretty views and we found out about the Fanø Rundridning (trail ride in Danish) and that they do a beach...

Sandbanks British Beach Polo

In my mind Beach Polo and Britain are not exactly a perfect match, especially not after the summer we’ve been having…But the stars aligned for the weekend of July 8th and 9th in Sandbanks, on the  Southern coast of England. The grandiose setup of the British Beach Polo Championship on the beach near Bournemouth along with warm weather and the occasional sun beam made up for a very fun social polo tournament, where the key word was exactly that: FUN!...

Pamalina Prints – A Passion for Polo

We all know that feeling of falling in love with a place and that the mere thought of having to leave and therefore not waking up there every day, hurts. Well this is exactly how Pamalina Prints came to be. Pamela had been in Argentina several times and every time she got back to EZE airport she felt like a piece of her was left behind. Last year on her trip to the polo hub in South America she made sure...

The Royal Box of Guards Polo Club with La Martina

I absolutely love to watch polo, whether from a grandstand, lunch terrace or sitting on the back of a pick-up truck I am equally delighted as I am focused on the game. The beauty and excitement of this noble sport is mesmerizing. Although I must say this past Sunday, May 15th, was quite a majestic treat. I was invited by La Martina to an exquisite lunch in the Royal Box of Guards Polo Club, as in where the actual Queen...


Prince Harry wins Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup 2016

Thunder and rain wasn’t going to stop the very anticipated Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup 2016 held at the beautiful grounds of the Valiente Polo Farm in Palm Beach. Prince Harry was in high spirits jokingly exclaiming an ironic ”Welcome to the sunshine state!” whilst seeming fairly unbothered by the rain, but then again he is used to playing polo in the rain back home in the UK. We saw the familiar faces of polo players Kris Kampsen and Brandon...

Polo is one of the most exciting and intense sports there is, with so much action on the field, horses galloping at 60 km/h, mallets swinging and hitting a tiny ball across the 300 yards long field. And when the two best teams of the tournament meet for the featured match, the US Open Polo Championship Final, it is bound to be an explosive affair.
