When I’m up in the wee hours of the morning feeding my baby girl I’ve been purging on youtube videos of high goal polo play. While Buster and Finn dream, Winnie and I escape into the world of high goal polo antics. Polo isn’t a mainstream sport and therefore doesn’t receive much air time on the television networks so […]

So after six months of pregnancy (click here, to read my thoughts on riding when pregnant) and seven weeks since welcoming Winnie into the world, I managed to squeeze in a couple of rides last week. Strangely, I was a little anxious about riding, post-partem, even though I’ve been there before with our Finn. I don’t know where  the […]

I’m the first to admit that I’m an awful spectator when it comes to watching a sport I love. At 27-weeks pregnant I’ve been pushed to the sideline for the current polo season. On Sunday I found myself in attendance at our home polo field on the banks of the mighty Mary River to watch Dad play in the […]

Apologies that this virtual space has been vacated for nearly a month now. Of late I’ve been tremendously losing  the tug-of-war between work and life. We’ve recently been on a two-night mini-break to the rural town of Goondiwindi (known as Gundy to most).  Buster, Finn and I, with Harry Noodle and our three polo ponies […]

After the weekend just gone I have to be honest with you, I’m second guessing my commitment to the world of polo now that I have a young family. The ground is absolutely sodden where I live, it squishes underfoot revealing rich, black mud. Polo has been cancelled over the last two weekends and our […]

I promised in this post that I would strap the go pro on my head and give you – my lovely blog followers – a bird’s eye view of  how I manage to work my three polo mares with limited time on my hands. I’m so very spoilt to ride in the pea green hills […]

One, two, three, four, five, six – six purple bruises dotted on my legs and arms after the weekend’s triumphs. I’m currently walking like a 90-year-old hunch-back, limping with a sore leg and moaning in pain when bending down to pick up Finn. After two days of polo my body is absolutely destroyed. Clearly I’m […]

I’ve been up before the sun even wakes from her slumber most mornings this week. You see I’m playing my first polo tournament this weekend since having my darling daughter, Finn, who is 13 months. It’s been a struggle to find the time to exercise three horses and get them ready for this weekend. They […]

With the start of May just around the corner the 2013 polo season is set to start and I must admit I’m getting quite excited at the thought of pelting up and down the polo field on my mares. Its going to be a interesting balancing act this year with Miss Finn in the picture. […]

Normally at this time of year, when the daylight hours start to contract and there is a razor-sharp crispness to the air, signifies the start of polo season (in Queensland, Australia we play polo throughout the winter months). My morning ritual begins with a dawn awakening, letting Harry Noodle (kelpie x cattle dog) off the […]
