We had a cool overcast Saturday and a glorious Sunday of polo practice. The fields are still wet, we are done on the grass for this season.
It was a challenge! Played on Comus Sky Team with Juanita and Nivedita against Marisa, Maika and Rachel. We held our own, Juanita scored 6 goals against their 9. Great hitting! And she had a perfect penalty shot. I don’t think I played well at all. Tomorrow, on to the consolation finals. Another day, another […]

Woke up this morning to the news that my hero has passed on. He was about my age. His life message is very powerful – do what you love and don’t settle. It has been my dream to play polo for the last 20 years! Through raising my daughters I never had the resources. I am […]

It has not stopped raining, and polo is cancelled today. Again. Wish I was in Chicago playing on the women’s team of the first beach polo match. Polo on the beach in Chicago!!! Awesome.
It has always been my dream to have a polo team to play on. This year we got rained out of the 6 goal tournament twice, and then Jose had to go back to Argentina. Maybe this winter I will put it together.
We managed to play in the arena on Sunday under threatening skies. Our teams were “girls against boys” – unusual in polo. But we beat them!!! 4 to 3. We played well as a team, and followed each other up. In the arena you can use the wall, so we played against it as much […]
Roberto has been managing Marcos’ horses. He is wonderful.
We have had so much rain we had to cancel our club tournament today. It cleared up a bit and I went out to ride Coneja. She is a sweetheart, the perfect polo pony for me.
