Feelings and tensions can build up in the polo field—combining the exhilarating feeling of galloping at full speed on a horse, the excitement of scoring a goal, and the happiness of winning a game. However, these aren’t the only emotions that being in the community can bring.
Polo players usually meet their opponents on the field, but some also meet their lifetime match. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we play cupid and spot our favorite polo couples who inspire us to grow and be better while keeping a healthy and loving relationship.
