Each one of these horses is roughly worth $100,000. So you are looking at a financial loss of over 2 Million, but that doesn't cover the time and training invested between horse and rider. To have your horse go down and not be able to save him is heart-wrenching. I'm sorry, this easy solution to this crime is just not going for me. I know competition is high, but I believe this went way beyond the polo match.
By the way, did you know that America has a polo team called the Black Watch named after the Scottish fighting regiment?
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." - K. Gibran
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
