Saturday Polo

I woke up envisioning hitting the ball to the back wall of the goal.  We will play in the arena today and I am starting my self-help talk to hit the target and to ride as fast as I can.  I am on a strong team but the other team is strong as well.  I always play the forward Number 1 position, and my main job is to ride to the goal to receive the pass from the back.   I had a spectacular miss – extremely frustrating – I can ride fast and get to the ball, and then I can’t hit it – horrible waste of a great pass, and very humiliating.  But I am learning, and promise myself to work hard to put it together.

Marcos gave me a beautiful bay mare to ride in the first chukker.  Her name is Coneja, which means doe in Spanish. Love her!  She is mine for the season.
