New Forest Polo Club

Women's Festival and the Blue jackets Tournament

During the month of August the New Forest Polo Club hosts two major events, the Women's Festival and the Blue jackets Trophy.  Both these fixtures were exiting to watch with fearless play by the women's and mixed teams.   

Photographing polo matches is challenging as the action flows from one end of the pitch to the other and no matter wherever you stand it always seems to be in the wrong place.  However, with many matches played over the weekend, I generally get a good selection of pictures.  Shown below is a selection of images from both the Women's Tournament and the Blue Jackets Tournament.
