Hamish’s bronze Polo Pony sculpture captures the agility and speed of the horse in action. Trained to be fearless in the melee of this fast-paced game, a Polo Pony must also be in peak physical condition to perform at full-tilt for the duration of a chukka. Polo ponies are prized for their stamina and ability to perform tight manoeuvres.

Despite being known as ponies, there is actually no height restriction for a Polo Pony. In Argentina, where the sport is particularly popular and the country’s players renowned for their skills, the Polo Pony tends to be a cross between a native Argentine Criollo horse and an English Thoroughbred.

This limited edition sculpture will appeal to polo fans and equestrians everywhere.

THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING

When researching for this sculpture, I went to a Polo match at The Beaufort Polo Club, in Gloucestershire, and witnessed the extraordinary agility of the horses and riders on the field. This Polo Pony was made as a commission and sculpted from life at the stables.
