Cambridge Polo

I spent the afternoon on Saturday watching the Hyde Pacific Polo Tournament at the Cambridge County Polo club’s ground, here are a few of my shots from the day.

One of the things about polo is that it is truly a sport where men and women compete on an equal footing, the teams are mixed & a nine stone woman can easily take on a twelve stone man and beat him by using her skills as a horsewoman.  It is a sport that requires the bravery and stamina of rugby and the intelligence and strategy of chess.
