Blue Peter presenter and Only Fools on Horses star Matt Baker (pictured), dressage riders Andrew Gould and Dane Rawlins, racehorse trainer Charlie Mann and Horse & Hound Editor Lucy Higginson are among the participants of a Charity Polo Day taking place at Hurtwood Park Polo Club, Ewhurst Green, Nr Cranleigh, Surrey on Sunday 3 June.
Grouped with proficient polo players including Hurtwood’s owner (and former drummer for The Who) Kenney Jones and Jodie Kidd, these polo virgins will do battle in aid of the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund. If their equestrian pride is not by then completely destroyed, Pony Club-style mounted games will follow later in the afternoon.
There will be a fun fair for children, trade stands, plus Pimms and Champagne bars. Gates open from 11am, with a dressage display at 2pm, the Celebrity Polo match at 3pm and mounted games at 4.50pm. A picnic car pass (for a car plus up to five passengers) costs £30.
