Happy New Year 2012

Riding and polo lessons at Mountain View Polo

Paul and I drove to Charles Town, West Virginia to our friends’ new polo club, Mountain View Polo (http://www.mountainviewpolo.com) to spend a few days working on riding and polo.

Paul had ridden a horse once in his life, and Laura had him cantering on his second lesson!  You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!  I am so proud of him.

I worked with Hugo on my polo seat and my swing, where we identified major problems I was having hitting the ball and sending it forward.   We worked on the near side shot, which I had never attempted.  I had not ridden or played since the end of October, and am out of shape already.  Great New Year’s resolution to work harder on strengthening my whole body.
