It's behind you !

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 22 July 2014 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

A few shots taken last month at the England v Hong Kong international Polo. Nige and I attended, we had never seen polo played before and were surprised what a fast tough and exciting game it is. The riders appeared more physical with each other than I expected and the ponies were incredibly tough, agile animals that were spectacular to watch.
Couldn't resist this one where the rider and pony had overshot the ball.
Happy Silly Tuesday

I try to post an image every day and do my best to comment on others, although sometimes have difficulty posting comments on peoples blogs at the weekend because of spending time with my family. Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback

I'm amazed the turf looks so good given all the action. Could be great for Croquet but a little too rich for snail racing :)

The agility these horses must have when working through tight squeezes like here must be a sight to see! Great action shot captured here!

A fine catch of this overshoot. I'd think it would be hard to recover from that very quickly.
