Opening Week at Bridgehampton Polo By emily hart post

I went to Bridgehampton Polo with my mom and dad. I have been going for about four years, and I did not like it years ago, but I think I am getting an acquired taste. In polo, the players ride horses and swing a polo mallet to try to put the ball through the goalposts. They ride fast and the South American players seem to do best. We visited the little pen in the tent area where they have tiny ponies from the Amaryrllis Farm, which rescues equines. I once visited it and rode a pony. There were lots of kids at Polo. There was a cool magician who used me in a trick having me pick a card and somehow he changed the card in my hand. I was his assistant and I said “How’d he do that?” My dad tried coconut water. He said he liked it but I don’t think he really acquired a taste for it – if you know what I mean.
