After a fantastically successful summer season, we are swapping our show jackets and riding crops for mallets and helmets and gearing up for the start of our eighth arena polo season. Preparations for the Christmas party season are also gathering pace, and with European gold medals to celebrate this year we can't wait for the glitter and glamour of the Hickstead Riders' Ball! Read on to discover all that is coming up at Hickstead before the end of the year and make sure you pen our 2014 horse show dates into next year's calendar...
England Polo Club opens its gates for the start of its eighth
arena polo season with two polo taster weekends so that you too can
come and try your hand at the sport of kings.
