Saddle up for some cross-country action

Polo South Africa in association with DSTV Premium brings you Polo International Horse trials, an adrenalin-fuelled, extreme equestrian event for the whole family. Now in its third year, the much-anticipated cross-country and show jumping spectacle, will take place on the 31st of October and 1st of November on the galloping grounds of Waterfall Polo Estate in Woodmead.

Presenting the ultimate challenge of horsemanship – horse and rider are required to perform three totally different activities within the same competition, namely dressage, cross country and show jumping – the winner will walk home with prizes in excess of R250 000. With competition coming from as far afield as the United Kingdom, France, Zambia and Zimbabwe the stakes for this much-coveted competition are high.

Key highlights for spectators include the Sunday morning Pink Pony 5km Walkathon, boutique style arena polo, an artisanal food and drinks village, delicious pre-packed picnic baskets, fun activities for the little ones and the live screening of the World Cup rugby finals at designated points throughout the estate. Presenting a jam-packed weekend, the Polo International Horse trials event will appeal to all – horse fanatics, thrill seekers and laidback lounge-a-rounders.

The annual Pink Pony Walkathon 5km Cansa fundraiser will start at 8am from Gate 10, Maxwell Drive at Waterfall Estate, participants are encouraged to dress up in their best pink gear with prizes being awarded for the most creative outfits. Four legged family friends are invited too (as long as they are on a leash) with all money raised from the walkathon going towards breast cancer and Movember fundraising initiatives.

Tickets are available from Ticketpro – www.ticketpro.co.za. For more information on the Polo International Horse Trails event visit www.polohorsetrials.com, Facebook /PoloInternationalHorseTrials and Twitter @PoloHorseTrials.
