In Motion….

Another photo from our visit to Barbados in 2014.  While touring around, we happened on a polo match in play.  Hopping out of the car and we stood with the other spectators to watch for a while.

It was fascinating – both the game and the interaction of the fans.  My boys were keen to try to figure out the game, whereas I found it a very cool place to people watch.  The spectators set up their folding camp chairs and coolers along the field line, just as I would do at one of my kids’ soccer games.  The difference was, these folks were sipping champagne from glass flutes.

It is certainly a game in motion.  When those ponies (horses?) came thundering by you knew it. According to the rules of the game, there are four players on a team.  Numbers 1-2 are traditionally attacking, 3 is mid-field and 4 is Defense.  However, as the sport is so fluid there are no definite positions.  That fact kind of tells you all you need to know.  Fast-paced and thundering.

It was a brilliant experience!!
