Playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake....Sylvester Stallone
One of the oldest known sports in the world, it is thought to have originated in Persia over 2000 years ago. The game as we know it today originates in India in the 1800s, where British soldiers who were stationed there saw the game being played locally and adapted it for their own uses, often using it as training for cavalry riders.
Brought to Britain soon after, rules were established and from then on the game spread, and is now played across the world where as well as the UK, it is particularly popular in Argentina and the USA.
Steve has been an official photography partner to the fabulous Dallas Burston Polo Club in Warwickshire for a number of years.
