The polo world has changed in these ten years. It has opened to a wider audience. It has learned that the young generation is the future and has put a lot of ideas and money into working with young people and supporting young talents. Since then access to the sport has become easier, polo schools and rented horses are not uncommon today. Our publisher himself is “in the saddle” and has just been taught some technical tips by Memo Gracida. We found so many partners and friends in the past year, that we wrote an article about it in this issue.
This POLO+10 World issue will present fantastic polo destinations. For example polo clubs on Hawaii and in Brazil. We had an interview with Tommy Lee Jones, Hollywood star and Harvard alumni, who played a key role in giving Harvard back its own polo team. He told us about his trip to Mongolia, which was obviously very impressive. We also looked behind the scenes of World Polo Tour and asked some questions about the individual stations, playing mode and ranking. But see for yourself, there is much more to discover.
We thank our readers for the many congratulations we have already received in this anniversary year. And as usual we look forward to your feedback and comments in future and hope you enjoy reading the current issue of POLO+10 World.
