Hickstead’s end-of-season Polo Ball will this year be supporting the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund (MDIRF).
“We are delighted to be supporting the MDIRF,” said polo secretary Emma Cook.
“This is a great opportunity for equestrian enthusiasts to support this important charity, whilst using it as an excuse to dress up and have a great evening with friends.”
The ball will be held at Hickstead, in West Sussex, on Saturday 13 March. It will include an awards ceremony, four-course dinner and champagne reception. Tickets cost £65.
As well as show jumping and dressage competitions, Hickstead is home to the All England Polo Club and on 27 February will host its third Arena Polo Test Match.
“Hickstead’s members know how to party and with demand for tickets higher than ever we’re expecting this year’s ball to be the biggest and best yet,” added Emma.
The MDIRF was founded in 1988 in memory of event rider Mark Davies who died in a fall at Burghley Horse Trials and provides financial, practical and medical help for injured riders and their families.
