The Complete Guide to Polo is the perfect resource for anyone interested in finding out more about this exciting game, especially those new to the sport. It discusses the history and evolution of the sport that we know today and its migration from India to Asia to Europe, and finally the Americas. It describes in detail the equipment used by both horse and rider, and offers advice on choosing one kind of equipment over another. The Complete Guide to Polo covers the horsemanship skills needed to excel in the game, and breaks down the swing into bite-sized chunks for analysis. It looks at basic polo strategy, explains the finer aspects of the rules of the sport, and compares the differences between the US and UK rule books. All in all it offers a great foundation for the beginner or intermediate player, the patron, or the spectator.

About the Author

plus icon minus icon

Lauren Dibble began her life with two passions: horses and writing. She began her equestrian career at an early age, taking hunter/jumper lessons, but transitioning to polo shortly after. When not riding, Lauren was constantly dabbling in a notebook; capturing stories or lyrics or poetry. While her writing matured, so did her equestrian career. She quickly evolved from taking lessons, to teaching, training polo ponies and managing stables.

Lauren received her undergraduate degree from Virginia Intermont College, the leading Equine program in the United States. Throughout college and afterwards, she traveled internationally, playing in Central and South America, the United States and Europe. Currently, she resides in Virginia, the proud wife of a US Marine and step-mother to a beautiful little girl.
