As a thank you to Chesterton Humberts for sponsoring MINT Polo in the Park 2012, the Marketing Department were treated to a day at the Hurlingham Club to take part in their Polo Academy. We were instructed in the use of the mallet, before being introduced to our ponies. Mine was a beautiful thoroughbred answering to the name of Tallulah (above, far right). I’m sure Hurlingham, with its long and proud history, has never seen such a motley bunch of players; most of us having never ridden a horse in our lives. I had a wonderful time and even won a little trophy for ‘most improved player’. All the credit goes to Tallulah of course, she being the only one of the pair of us who could actually play polo.
