“Polo is about communication and you have to communicate with your team mates, pony and your enemy all the time.” – Vichai Raksriaksorn (He is an avid polo player and owns the VR Polo Club in Bangkok.)

“If you ride well, you have got something to offer. Working on your riding is the quickest way to improve your polo, The most important thing is balance the horse and getting your 1/2 seat right. Riding with short reins and light contact is better for turning, because the neck is more responsive at the top.” – Jamie Le Hardy (6 goal player England and Winner Gold Cup 1997)

“Ride from the legs – If you can play polo for 10 minutes on your knees, this will give you a good shot. This will put yourself on the saddle without using the reins. The more you move on the back of a horse, the more you complicate its movement. A tight rein can help the horse if it stumbles (by lifting its head). Point your left shoulder at the ball when hitting.” – Marco Focaccia (2007 SPP polo round table).
