Our beginner teams were equally incredible. Team ‘Stirrup Trouble’ may have lost their first chukka, 0-1, but made a comeback scoring 2-1. Same goes for team ‘Snow Sleighers’ who lost 1-2 then tied at 1-1 in the second chukka.
This has been a huge improvement from last year’s tournaments where only one team competed and went home with no wins.
“I am very pleased with the increased interest, enthusiasm and dedication of our new members and I am so proud of the achievements we have seen from our first tournament this academic year! I am very excited to see what we can achieve in the Winter and Summer School and Universities Polo Association (SUPA) nationals,” said President Maria Zay.
The Equestrian and Polo Club also raised £32 for the Chigwell Riding Trust selling cookies, bracelets and Christmas cards and decorations during the Christmas Market on campus on the 29th.
The Polo teams will be training hard in preparation for the Winter nationals in February and will be campaigning to raise money. To find out more and support, you can follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
