ANYA STEPANOVA 1

WHAT DOES ANYA STEPANOVA HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE GLAM AND THE ATTRACTIVE FORCE OF POLO ?

There is probably no other sport but polo to be awarded with such dignity, style and noble appreciation.

Indeed, this is the only one sport that has a privilege to be rightly called « the game of aristocrats »and « sport of the
kings ».

All the players have an individual, particular, nearly biographical story of how life path led them to the polo doorsteps. Some overheard about it during a fancy friend’s ‘aperetivo’ conversation, some had a chance to visit a breathtaking tournament and some, just like me, have always been real passionate about the mixed touch of glamour, adrenalin, team game and luxurious lifestyle.

But we all had that one thing in common: POLO DID TURN US ON.

The reunion of the ancient aristocratic tradition is taking modern polo on another level: sport and fashion, together as a whole are the inalienable descriptors of the noble entertainment.

The royal Ascot glamour, international elite audience, luxurious sponsors and the beauty of the human/horse syncing, that’s what makes polo so unique.

 As the English say: you must be born with a « silver spoon in your mouth », to succeed in polo.
How can it possibly not turn you on ?

Living and playing in Italy, the country whose masculine standards has never gave a chance to the feminine community, there has been always some sort of tension, between the male and female players.

Men are always trying to poke fun, once we, girls, get some ladylike polo horse gadgets such as pink horsewhip or saddle pads referring to the fact that polo is a rough masculine sport.

I would like to disagree not with the community-established views but with the fact that us, women polo players, can still play in a feminine, graceful, elegant manner and ‘yes’ we do wear high heels after all.

However, polo is not a game for the weak or amateurs.
It is a difficult and competitive sport.

The combination of a stick, ball and a horse, that’s what makes every game so challenging.
