Hurlingham-Polo-Association-Logo

The departure of Veuve Clicquot as Gold Cup sponsors. Is this a worry?

Gareth A Davies: It's a huge loss in some ways, after two decades as one of polo’s global title sponsors. The new sponsors stepping into the breach have huge shoes to fill. It came as a surprise to many, but the great champagne house’s time should be celebrated.

Chris Ashton: The pinnacle of my all too brief Polo career
Screen_Shot_2014-03-21_at_12.12.58_PM.png

 

I was in my late teens when I set my heart on rounding out my education at Oxford University before, as I then imagined, I returned to the family sheep farm. Why would a teenage Australian farm boy want to go to Oxford? Let us just say that, compliments of my schooling and university I was in thrall to one of Europe’s ancient seats of learning, the mother university of the English-speaking world; to its promise of chiming church bells, cloistered quadrangles, Gothic spires and cobblestone streets, of punting on the Cherwell and feisty dons.

Horacio Laffaye: a Polo Historian's take on Tanoira's Reflections
Screen_Shot_2014-03-19_at_12.36.37_PM.png

 

What are we to make of Tanoira's Reflections? How does it contribute to debate within the polo community behind closed doors? Will patron polo henceforth define how the game is played? Or is there another way forward? I put this to Dr Horacio Laffaye.

   TANG DYNASTY POLO

Medieval art from the golden age of Imperial China

Be it poetry, artworks or surviving polo grounds, everything points to imperial Persia, circa 500 B.C., as the genesis of polo, a court pleasure of the nobility and, as with other Asian empires in ancient times, crucial to honing the horsemanship of cavalry for mounted warfare. But who could tell you that under the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.), a thousand years later, China became the world’s leading polo nation?

Polo History, Ancient Origins By Chris Ashton

 

The hill tribes of northern India, who bequeathed polo to their British rulers, were the custodians of a sport which had been played at least 2,500 years before at the court of the Persian Emperor Darius 1 (550-486 B.C.). (…)

In succeeding centuries, as armies ranged back and forth in retreat and conquest across the continent, polo was adopted by cavalries as a training exercise for mounted warfare, and by kings and emperors, shahs and sultans, khans and caliphs as a court pleasure.
