THE SPORT OF POLO
"As a sport, polo is hard, highly competitive, and full of risk. Beyond the game's obvious glamour and beauty is a hidden world of endless toil and effort. For these reasons, and for the tenacity, the character, and the cool mind it demands, I cannot conceive polo as anything but a sport of gentlemen, and in the modern world, ladies. The game additionally requires a noble sporting spirit, a sense of camaraderie, and - one need hardly say so - a great love of horses".
