The date has been set for Polo on the Beach 2014!
5 – 6 July 2014
Polo on the Beach 2014 will take place over the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th July, plus it’s free to attend.
Can you believe that Polo on the Beach is now in its 8th year?
There will be 3 polo matches played on the sand at Watergate Bay this year. Starting on Saturday 5th July with an all ladies match – a first for Polo on the Beach – followed by the Watergate Trophy match. Sunday 6th July will have just the one match, Cornwall vs Rest of the World. Who will you be cheering on?
Although the weekend will be focussing on the polo, there are still lots of other exciting and entertaining events being planned. The activities will begin in the early afternoon in the arena each day, along with a barbecue & bar, the Veuve Cliquot Champagne bar and live music.
The music will continue on the beach into the evening on 5th July.
Interesting fact about Polo ponies
They actually aren’t always ponies! Horses ranging from 14.2 – 16 hands high are now able to play. Originally ponies had to be 54″ or under to be allowed to play. Some of the horses are retrained racehorses, so they definitely have the speed behind them. Smaller ponies are usually more agile though. Whatever size they may be, polo ponies are incredibly brave, determined creatures!
A full timetable will be confirmed shortly.
