Since we spend a lot of our time snapping pictures of ‘polo in motion’ and sharing them on this site we thought it would be a really great idea to join Pinterest, where we can share more pictures and create galleries using other people’s photos.

We wish her the very best of luck! Shame that there is no Polo on the Olympic programme in London but maybe there is an opportunity for 2016 in Brazil where golf and rugby are already set to return.
