On Sunday, July 28th, I will compete in the Westchester Cup, one of polo’s oldest and most prestigious cups. It was created in 1886 and is a three game match between the United States and England. Today, it’s part of the Audi International Polo Series. This year, I have the honor of representing the USA as captain of the Equus & Co. USA Team as we take on the Audi England team and their captain, Luke Tomlinson. This year’s match will be held at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park.
What I love most about this match is the history and friendly rivalry behind it. To me, it’s an honor to be able to say I am playing in the same tournament the “Big Four” once played in, in 1909!
The last time the match was played was in 2009 at the Palm Beach International Polo Club. I had the privilege of being on the USA team back then as well, but after a tough game, England took home the trophy. After 16 years of the Westchester Cup being played in the states, it’s time to back to England and win the match!
