  • One sunny morning as we sat having coffee my partner, one of the non sports people gave me the biggest laugh of my life. Not of the ha ha ha variety but one of those moments when your body can't contain the hilarity and you go weak at the knees and collapse in a heap on the floor. Somehow our conversation came round to polo and the ponies involved. There was I all knowing explaining to her how in Argentina where the best polo ponies come from one method of breaking them in was to blindfold them and lead them to a river where they were mounted and allowed to buck out in shallow water. Then from somewhere in her brain came the question, are these the ponies they use for WATER POLO?
