Country Tails

June 21, 2016


Hosted by Urs and Francesca Schwarzenbach at the River Field, Black Bears; VIP guests included HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Lord Timothy Bell, Eve Branson, Marchioness of Milford Haven and Field Marshal The Lord and Lady Guthrie who enjoyed the very best that Britain has to offer, whilst experiencing the fast-paced excitement of high-goal polo. Not to mention the auction that saw British Polo Day’s philanthropic efforts storm past the $2million mark, which is especially significant on the milestone of British Polo Day’s 50th global event. Having accomplished 50 successful events in no less than 16 countries, over the past 6 years, Saturday’s event was a salute to all that has been established within the ecosystem of British Polo Day, thanks to the dedication of its partners and the team. 

Guests arrived in chauffeur-driven Bentley Mulsannes to be treated to a Chase and Nyetimber reception. The opening game of Brompton Bicycle Polo was an amusing display seeing the Chase Vodka Team rise to victory against the Taylor Morris Team, with James Chase scoring two goals. Our new horse box bar was also on hand to offer refreshment to guests and players alike.
