Under the gentle flutter of flags on the grandstands, devotees of polo gathered to watch the world's best battle it out last Sunday for this year's Cartier Queen's Cup Final match at Guards Polo Club. Would it be 3rd time lucky for Michael Bickford's La Indiana, or would it be victory for Andrey Borodin's high-goal virgins Park Place, newly up from medium goal this season?

Despite the less than seasonal chill, the atmosphere wa...

The summer season of equestrian events is ever expanding, and as the same can't be said of our purses, we wanted to bring you a post containing hints and tips on creating stunning looks a budget for the summer's special equestrian events. 

Occasions such as the Royal Ascot, the Cartier Queen's Cup polo at Guards or the Jaeger LeCoultre Gold Cup at Cowdray all have their different outfit requirements and/or dress codes, and...

If you've been to any equestrian event over the last decade or so, you'll have notices the jaunty patterned leather belts that have become increasingly popular

As Hannah counts down the hours until she can get back in the saddle later this week, we look back at her final few days of her rehab fitness programme and see what she’s been up to in her quest to be riding fit before she gets back on board.

As we’ve seen over the last few weeks, the main story has been one of adding in different exercises as the period has gone on. Apart from one not-to-be-repeated session on the bicycle, whe...

It's been an intense week for Hannah, with a flurry of activity meaning that it's been a struggle to motivate herself to get to the gym as often as she would have liked.

It was the wettest setting imaginable for this year’s Royal Salute Coronation Cup match.  Unrelenting, torrential rain tested the resolve of players and spectators alike, and who knows what the groundsmen thought about having their pitch cut to ribbons under the hooves of the ponies! However, at 3.00pm, as the hardy spectators arranged their umbrellas to best viewing effect, both teams squelched their way onto the Queen’s Grou...

2017, so far, seems to be the year of the ‘golden oldie’. Notable victories for horses such as the 17 year old Nereo in this year’s Badminton (where in second place was another 17 year old, the legendary La Biosthetique-Sam FBW), and similar successes in lower levels across the disciplines indicate the growing number of older horses still successfully competing at a more advanced age than was previously possible. What’s causin...

Arena polo on grass? We could almost hear the polo purists shuddering. Due to post-war development on part of the Hurlingham polo grounds it is no longer possible to have a full size pitch for polo and Chestertons Polo in the Park have taken full advantage of this to bring a more ‘accessible’ version of polo to an urban audience – four chukka, three-a-side polo with an arena ball, and with no changing of ends until the mid-way...
