In October 2014 I was invited to play in the inaugural Malaysian Ladies Polo Championships.
These are some of Irish thoroughbreds that have been previously sold to clients abroad. Some were originally meant for racing, but were too small. Small ponies are perfect for polo because they're quick and agile.
Polo in Ireland is a little known sport. I myself with an equestrian background had no idea it existed really until I was about 18 years of age and a friend asked me to help her to exercise her polo ponies. I began playing competitively 3 years later.
