GB v Ireland exhibiton match, Polo at Smith's Lawn

A battle scene moment. Ireland has the ball but fail to win the day. Fun spectator sport. Only four players on a team - four horses each - it's fast and often a muddle. The commentators really know names and ages of players and ponies along with the witty repartee and speedy moments...

Smith's Lawn Polo in the Rain

Another chance to be in 'the Great Park'. Exhibition match GB versus Ireland, finalists at the 1908 Olympics, when Polo was an Olympic sport. It rained.
