The Complete Guide to Polo is the perfect resource for anyone interested in finding out more about this exciting game, especially those new to the sport. It discusses the history and evolution of the sport that we know today and its migration from India to Asia to Europe, and finally the Americas. It describes in detail the equipment used by both horse and rider, and offers advice on choosing one kind of equipment over another. The Complete Guide to Polo covers the horsemanship skills needed to excel in the game, and breaks down the swing into bite-sized chunks for analysis. It looks at basic polo strategy, explains the finer aspects of the rules of the sport, and compares the differences between the US and UK rule books. All in all it offers a great foundation for the beginner or intermediate player, the patron, or the spectator.

Reviews

'It's jam-packed with information, all clearly laid out and illustrated with photographs' ... 'it's fantastic for someone like me who's had a couple of lessons and wants to progress. The section on horsemanship is particularly useful, with clear instructions on everything from where your weight should be to how to play each shot' ... ' This is a great book for anyone interested in taking up polo or learning more about it - now I just need to work out a way of balancing it on my pony's withers while I learn the swings!' Horse and Countryside 'This is a useful, well-illustrated introduction to this fast-paced team sport.' NFU Countryside 'You're certain to be a sure shot with a mallet after reading her expert advice!' ...
