You probably know that the brand Polo, most likely found in Ralph Lauren, is not just a made up name. But for those of you who do not know, it is actually based on a real sport by the name of Polo. Until today, I didn't know this. I thought that the little man on a horse holding a stick was just a pose created for that line of clothing. But actually its a real thing.
Here is the definition I found on Wikipedia:
Anyway, for the first time I went to a Polo match with my Mom, Dad and part turkey dog. It was really interesting to watch, the riders made it look so easy, whacking the mallet and riding their horses at the same time.
I think it would be a really cool sport to learn.
