January 2018 ~ Manipur, India
Two women from Maryland Polo Club, Olivia Stringer and Marissa Wells, recently played polo in India with teammates Eva Crossman and Belinda Brody. Olivia captained her team representing the USA to the finals where they lost to Kenya by only one goal. All matches were played using the famed local Manipur ponies. The Manipur ponies are rapidly diminishing and it is the hope of the Manipur Polo Clubs to save these treasured ponies. It was very evident that these four women had experience riding ponies as youngsters due to their success in the tournament! Our women members were thrilled to be involved in such an outstanding event and to contribute to the future of the Manipurs and women’s polo in India!
