Well. Last weekend was pretty moist.
Lost all of my chukkas in my division (well, we drew the last one, but it may as well be a loss) and got injured in my first chukka. Apart from that, I am feeling fortunate that I didn’t fall off, given the state of the pitches after Day 1.
Overall, I had a fairly fulfilling time (albeit not taking part in any of the parties that took place) and all the ponies I got to ride were very well to do with no issues.
The chukkas were held at Offchurch Bury Polo Club and our horses were hired from Silver Leys Polo Club.
Day 1 – Winchester and Warwick
Not the best chukkas, with me struggling to see for a lot of it with the heavy rain and my glasses steaming up. Winchester was pretty mediocre, with the rain at its heaviest on that Friday morning. It is in this game I took a rough hooking from another player who sought to disrupt my full swing by throwing everything and the kitchen sink it.
