My first time

You always remember your first time.

So this was what is was like for me:







An interesting afternoon watching an unusual sport. Not the best match apparently and the Cowdray Park crowd went on the rampage afterwards. One fellow even slammed the Bentley door rather sharply to show his displeasure.

Re: My first time

So you just horsed around your first time?

It looks like one could get hurt if in the wrong place at the wrong (or right) time.

Three nice photos (but my first time was quite a bit different ).

Re: My first time

I don't think they do Polo up here, except for the boy racers of course

Like that 1st one, a candidate for a caption competition.

Re: My first time

Slammed the Bentley door, eh? You should have hit it with your polo stick! That would have REALLY shown him!

I don't think I've ever seen polo shots before...but then, it isn't my thing. Nice captures.

Re: My first time

Can anyone help read in a newspaper that you cannot play polo left-handed; why?

If a left handed and a right handed player are approaching the ball at full tilt from opposite directions their ponies will be on a collision course and disaster will ensue. If both players are "same handed" the ball will be between the courses of the two ponies and the worst that will happen will be the mallets colliding. Since there are many more right handed than left handed people the lefties got banned. However, I understand that there are some left handed professional players who have successfully learnt to play right handed.

I suppose they thought you were a second footman when you arrived in the Scooby.

Re: My first time

I am just glad I wasn't wearing my high heels....

We all went out on the pitch at half time to squash the divots.

Aah. England
