Equitainment's Comments

Photos, and more photos, many full paged photos and pages full of photos, oh, there is text but not enough to get bored on. A book full of beauty, excitement, games in progress, from the behind scenes, transport to stabling. A beautifully captured book for even the non-polo of us to the admirers of the sport and of course those who live and breathe it.

Product Overview

Polo is an ancient game, once played by princes and rajahs, now the sport of young professional horsemen worldwide... Very few can match Susan Barrantes' knowledge of horses and polo...

She has given this book an intimate and personal touch with old black-and-white photos from her own scrapbooks and dazzling new colour photography from around the world. The reader of this elegantly designed volume follows the game from the farms of England to the estancias of Argentina, and the exotic and famous international polo clubs.

Susan Barrantes has always involved herself with the backstage details of polo and here illustrates the daily chores, crafts and skills that maintain this most competitive sport. She has a special love for the campo, home of the world-renowned Argentine polo pony, and provides rarely seen glimpses of traditional life and work on the huge country estancias.
