There were thrills and spills this weekend at Holders Hill during the finale between Canada and Barbados. In the warm up match between Unna and Port Ferdinand, Pablo Crespin had a tumble from his horse in the second chukka.
Canada gave Barbados a similar drubbing where the Maple Leafs made 7 to the 3 Barbados scored in the first and second chukkas, Team Captain Bryan O’Leary not only expressed Gratitude but offered tribute to the passing of former President Keith Melville;-
Polo is a game which is played in four quarters known as chukkas, after each chukka the goals switch around as opposed to football where the goalposts switch only once at half-time. It is one of the oldest equestrian games in the world with some placing it as starting with the early Mongol empire about 3,000 years ago.
