World leading Equestrian stars confirmed for Nic Roldan's Inaugural UK Sunset Polo at Cowdray

Top American Polo Player and Brooke USA ambassador Nic Roldan is excited to an-nounce that on Tuesday, June 20th 2017 the first Global edition of Sunset Polo will take place between 5:00pm – 11:00pm, in the form of “Nic Roldan’s UK Sunset Polo” at the ancestral home of British Polo: Cowdray House in West Sussex. Monty Roberts, world renowned natural horseman, will give a Horse Sense and Healing demonstration, whilst Olympic Gold medalist Scott Brash will make his polo debut alongside Roldan in what is billed to be 2017’s hottest equestrian ticket.

Nic is thrilled to be hosting the event on a Midsummer’s afternoon on the old polo field in the grounds of Cowdray House. It will provide a magical setting. He aims to make it an event to remember for all, and of course to continue on his mission to raise awareness and funds for both Brooke (Registered Charity No. 1085760) and the Chestnut Tree House (Registered Charity No. 256789). Brooke is the world’s largest international equine welfare organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules and those who rely on them through veterinary treatment and community programmes in the world’s poorest communities. Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions.

The event will include some high calibre equestrian displays:

  • Monty Roberts, will give a Horse Sense and Healing demonstration in which he combines his Join-Up® methods with empowering veterans suffering from post trau-matic stress.
  • A western reining display by top UK Reiner Tammy Greaves.
  • The Sunset Polo game which will see top professionals as well as up and com-ing players join Roldan.
  • The much anticipated celebrity chukker including Gold Medal Olympians Scott Brash and Victoria Pendleton, UK number one 3-day eventer William Fox Pitt, 2 time Grand National Winner Leighton Aspell and the formidable
  • Wocket Woy all pick up a mallet for charity.

There will be both silent and live auctions with five exceptional lots, followed by a firework display.

Three tiers of tickets are on sale, General admittance, Luxury Afternoon Tea and All inclusive VIP packages where Cowdray House will be the venue for an exceptional dinner provided by the The Lickfold Inn team, which is overseen by Michelin Star Chef Tom Sellers.

Equestrian displays of the highest calibre, world class food, a magical venue on a British Midsummer’s night and all for two great causes. This is one date that must not be missed in your summer plans and we very much look forward to welcoming you on June 20th.
