The Holey Dollar that inspired our logo Macquarie adopted its name from Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the man responsible for transforming the early settlement in Australia from a penal colony into a dynamic economy. Governor Macquarie introduced the Holey Dollar in 1813 as the colony’s first domestic coinage. He overcame an acute currency shortage by purchasing Spanish silver dollars, punching out the centres and creating the Holey Dollar and the Dump. This doubled the number of coins in circulation, increased their worth by 25 per cent and prevented them from leaving the colony. The Holey Dollar was an inspired solution to a difficult problem and, for this reason, it was chosen as our symbol.

POLO FAQ

Know The Game

HOW MANY

PLAYERS MAKE UP A POLO TEAM? With all those players and ponies on the field, it can be difficult to decipher each team! A polo team is made up of four players for outdoor polo, and three players for indoor polo. There are also two umpires on the field, officiating game play. Team players wear matching jerseys, and it is tradition to have one team in lighter coloured jerseys, and the other in dark coloured jerseys.

WHICH DIRECTION

IS EACH TEAM TRAVELLING TO SCORE A GOAL? Polo teams change direction to goal after each goal is scored. If Team White is going north and Team Blue is going south at the first throw in of the game, the direction they are travelling corresponds with the direction they are pointing in the throw in. After a goal is scored, teams line up on the umpires for the next throw in and prepare to travel the opposite direction to goal. One explanation for this is to equalize playing conditions—if the sun is in your eyes, or the wind is blowing fiercely, it might give either team an unfair advantage. By swapping goal ends after each goal, playing conditions are mitigated.

WILL A PLAYER

WITH A 4-GOAL HANDICAP SCORE 4 GOALS PER GAME?

26

Polo players have a handicap rating between 0 goals (or an A rating) and 10 goals. Beginner players are assigned a handicap rating of -2 (or C) if they have never participated in a tournament, or -1 (or B) if they are playing in tournaments with limited experience. Most amateur players who play recreational polo are rated -1, 0 or 1 goal, and professional players are rated

2011 • CALGARY POLO MAGAZINE


Polo FAQ 2 goals and up. Handicaps are determined by a Handicap Committee at each polo club, and are then made official upon submission to the United States Polo Association (USPA). There is no correlation between the handicap rating of a player, and the number of goals that player will score in any game. However, look to pro players with handicaps of 2 goals and up to make some great plays and awesome shots on goal!

ARE THERE

ANY LEFT-HANDED PLAYERS? The governing body of polo in North America, the USPA, officially banned left-handed play in 1974. This ban took effect mostly for safety reasons. The line of the ball creates “highways” of play on the field. Having mallets in the right and left hands of polo players is akin to having traffic oncoming on both the right and left sides of a freeway—it’s dangerous and unpredictable. In today’s polo games, all players carry their reins in the left hand, and their mallets in the right hand.

The number 3 is usually the strongest player on the team: it is their primary responsibility to move the ball up the field toward goal. Number 3 players can often hit the ball a long distance with great accuracy, and have impressive control of the ball. Number 3 is responsible for defending number 2 on the opposing team. Number 4 is often referred to as the “back.” This player is largely

THEY WEAR WHITE PANTS? WHY DO

Polo players wear jerseys that are numbered 1 through 4, with each number corresponding to a position on the field. The player in the number 1 jersey is a forward: he is an offensive player, who most often stays close to the goal end zone, and is expected to run and score. The number 1 player is also responsible for “riding off” and serving defense against the number 4 player on the opposing team. The number 2 is primarily an offensive player as well. The number 2 player often follows the number 1 player to goal, and is ready for missed or blocked shots. The number 2 player is responsible for defending the number 3 player on the opposing team.

concerned with defense—guarding their end of the field against goal scoring. The back lines up against the opposing number 1 player, and provides reinforcement to the number 3 player in moving the ball up the field.

White breeches for polo matches originated during colonial times, when the sport was played in Britain and India by nobility and army officers. White pants were donned out of respect for the game and fellow players, and to help beat the heat in warmer climates.

PONIES DOES A PLAYER FIELD IN A GAME?

HOW MANY

WHAT DO

THE NUMBERS ON THE JERSEYS MEAN?

Most polo players play a different pony in each chukker (or period) of the match. After a 7½ minute chukker, ponies need a rest! Some players may choose to “double” one of the best ponies, or bring it back for a latter portion of the game. Generally, players bring as many ponies to the field as there are chukkers of play. For a Low Goal, or 4-chukker game, each player brings 4 ponies. For a High Goal, or 6-chukker game, at least 6 ponies come to the field. Often, a spare one or two ponies tag along as well (in case one of the ponies in the playing string becomes tired or injured during play).

Polo FAQ

WHY DO

THEY CLIP THE PONIES MANES OFF AND TIE UP THE TAILS? Long, flowing manes and tails are dangerous in polo because they can interfere with mallets and reins during the course of play. Polo is a contact sport: with eight ponies and players on the field participating in ride-offs and close competition for the ball, it is important that tack and ponies are turned out in a tidy and safe manner. Manes are clipped off and tails are braided and taped to avoid getting tangled with other players and ponies, just as protective gear is worn by both ponies and players to avoid injury during play.

WHEN DOES

AN UMPIRE TO BLOW THE WHISTLE? The most basic concept in the sport of polo is the “line of the ball.” The line of the ball is a right of way that is established between a player and the path of a travelling ball. Several plays can change or alter the line of the ball: a player can hook an opponent’s mallet, push an opposing player off the line of the ball with a “bump,” or steal the ball away using handy mallet work that does not impede

the direction or speed of the opposing player. Most fouls occur when an opposing player makes a play on a ball that was not on “their line.” It is a foul to cross or infringe on the line of the ball at dangerous angles. The line of the ball is a difficult concept to grasp when you first start watching polo, but give it some time. Polo rules were developed with the safety of the players and ponies in mind. Opposing players must consider the speed and angle at which they are travelling at all times, to ensure that they are not interfering with the right-of-way of any other players on the field.

DO MEN

AND WOMEN PLAY AGAINST EACH OTHER?

2011 • CALGARY POLO MAGAZINE

Polo is one of the few sports in the world that pits men against women in open competition. Both men and women are rated according to the same polo handicap scale, and are often found participating on the field together. The majority of polo professionals with handicaps of four and above are male players; however, women regularly compete in tournaments against these players, and hold their own on the field!


GETTING STARTED

Calgary Polo:

Behind The Scenes

The Calgary Polo Club is host to a variety of polo players and ponies— local and international, professional and amateur, beginners and seasoned veterans. What does it take to join this group of equine and sport enthusiasts? What follows is a glimpse behind the scenes, at training polo ponies, getting started in the sport, and organizing a winning team.

Start Me Up

Polo is a challenging sport that draws a range of students and fans. Some players sign up for polo lessons at the Calgary Polo Academy on a whim, says Kyle Fargey, Director of the Calgary Polo & Riding Academy, and a 3-goal professional player. “One of our current playing members started lessons after a trip to Argentina. He bought a La Martina polo jersey, then decided to take up the sport to go along with the jersey!” Other startup players are established in a local equine discipline— whether it be western penning, reining, or show jumping at Spruce Meadows—and are looking for a new and exciting way to spend time with horses. According to Fargey, “There really is no ‘traditional’ polo player in Calgary. There are retired hockey players looking for an invigorating new sport, cowboys and cowgirls looking to expand their horizons, and downtown professionals looking for a new challenge. This makes for a fun polo academy and club experience, because players come from all backgrounds, with all different types of skills and abilities.” Riding experience is definitely an asset when it comes to playing polo. Learning the skills necessary to control the horse while learning the rules of the game is a tall order for many players. Fargey generally encourages students to take riding instruction before, or concurrent to, their transition into polo: “Polo is more enjoyable if you are comfortable on the back of a horse. It takes a while to learn how to get the most out

Getting Started

The Calgary Polo Club welcomes all those interested in horses and polo to contact club staff to find out more about the sport, and the great polo club facilities. Anne Evamy, a longtime player and a Board Member at the Calgary Polo Club, finds endless opportunities for her friends and family to enjoy the sport: “The polo club has so much to offer. If you are still learning the sport, the hitting cage and the arena are great places to learn balance, the mechanics of your swing, and the basic rules of play. If you are ready to hit the field, the Polo Academy offers lessons for individuals and groups, from beginners to advanced. My husband Rick and daughter Jenny have both participated in Coaching Chukkers hosted by Kyle Fargey and my son Geoff is taking up lessons in 2011. These slow practice periods are a great way to learn the game and Kyle makes it fun! You only go as fast as you are ready to go, and your pony guides you as you learn! There are kids all of ages at the club— and lots of grown up ‘kids’ who play as well!” The funny thing about polo is that very few spectators want to stay positioned on the sidelines for long! Once you get addicted to watching the sport, the natural progression is to start playing. Once beginner players spend a season or two in the Polo Academy, they eventually invest in their own “string.” In order to play tournament polo, each players requires at least 3 to 4 ponies. Finding a pony that fits a player’s riding ability and polo experience level is very important. Kyle Fargey has assisted several local players in sourcing out their first ponies: “I can’t

stress enough how important it is to find the right pony to learn polo. Safety is essential in the game. A lot of players start out on polo ‘school ponies’—these are reliable ‘bomb-proof’ horses that anyone can ride. From there, most players look to purchase experienced and safe ponies that can teach them about the game. These are often older horses (over 12 years) that are too slow for a more advanced player. I have found a lot of my students’ horses down in California, where there is a large pool of polo ponies available. I have a lot of contacts in the industry, and it always helps to buy a pony from someone you trust.”

A Winning Team

of ponies, but polo is a great way to do it! Horses are brilliant animals, and the sport truly allows both ponies and players to rise to the occasion.”

Players participate in league play at the Calgary Polo Club at a variety of levels. Most beginner players (those with a B rating) participate in low-goal tournament games. Teams in the low-goal league are usually made up of 1 or 2 professional players (rated 1 goal and up) and 2 or 3 amateur players (rated A or B). The tournaments are competitive and exciting to watch; however, they are also a source of friendly competition amongst groups of players trying to gain experience on the field.

The Calgary Polo Club Polo Manager, Rob Roenisch, is largely responsible for pulling in and creating teams at the low-goal level: “low-goal polo is an important stepping stone to faster, more competitive polo. The Calgary Polo Club is lucky to have several visiting polo professionals each season—and low-goal polo relies on the skill and experience of these players to teach others game strategy and field positioning.” Roenisch, a former 5-goal professional player, suggests that, like every other sport, the only way to get better at polo is to spend time working at it. “It takes hundreds of hours on the field, in the game, to learn the sport of polo.

Getting Started Not only do you have to be an effective rider, you need to have a solid understanding of the rules of play, and a strong awareness of other players’ skills and weaknesses.” More experienced amateur players typically choose to play medium- or high-goal polo. The competition and speed of these leagues is noticeably faster than that of the low-goal, with a larger proportion of the teams made up of professional, rated players. Teams are typically sponsored by one or two amateur players, who source out professional players that match the handicap requirements of the league, and whose playing style compliments their own. Finding a pro to fit a polo team is not always easy, but the investment in a team relationship with a polo professional can be as rewarding as it is educational. Pros often spend time with their teammates and sponsors, assisting them with game strategy, horse purchasing, and tournament preparation.

WINNING PONIES

Rob Roenisch offers insight from his long career as a highgoal polo professional: “We are lucky to have a long history of high-goal polo in the region. We have great talent here, in our own backyard. There is nothing better than watching a high-goal afternoon game from atop the berm on a Sunday afternoon—unless you are playing in that game, and you are on the winning team.”

2011 • CALGARY POLO MAGAZINE

It is easy to spot professional players on the field at the Calgary Polo Club: they are those players who make the game look almost effortless on ponies that are strong, agile, quick, and responsive. Pedro Orellana, a long-time professional player at the Calgary Polo Club, suggests that the best ponies “have to be fast, stop and turn on a dime, and most importantly, they have to be built properly to be able to support the work that a top horse has to do, both physically and mentally.” In their search for great polo candidates, pros like Orellana look for a certain conformation, balance, and mentality in young mounts: “I look for a short back, a compact body, and a nice head and neck. I also want them to have a natural balance and a good mouth. They must learn new things quickly and remember well what they have learned.”


Getting Started Most polo horses in North America are thoroughbreds; they typically have the speed, stamina, and agility required by the game. Orellana suggests that players are also increasingly looking to Argentina’s polo horse breed: “The latest in Argentine polo blood lines is a new breed they call Polo Argentino, which, in its origins, was a cross between the thoroughbred breed and the Criollo Argentino, a heavier-set work horse of Argentina.” Orellana suggests that a polo pony trainer requires anywhere from 2 to 5 years to train a winning pony, but that generally, after 3 years, one has a very good understanding of a horse’s potential for the game. “It takes time, patience, and skills that are hard to describe. Every horse is different, so every horse is a new challenge. Patience is the most important part of the job, every day.” What transcends every aspect of polo at the Calgary Polo Club, be it Junior polo, high-goal tournaments, or polo pony training, is a sense of passion for the game and the horses. Just ask any member of the polo club, and shortly, you will begin to understand the excitement and commitment that players and ponies alike share for the sport.

FIP:

Polo on the International Stage

The Federation of International Polo, commonly known as FIP, was founded in 1982. FIP promotes polo on an international scale, and encourages international competition. More specifically, the FIP seeks to expand international playing opportunities for players, and have the sport of polo reinstated in the Olympic Games. In order to gain the recognition of the International Olympic Committee, the sport needs to demonstrate a shared understanding of rules in countries across the world, and there has to be an internationally accepted and common experience of polo tournaments worldwide. Over the last 30 years, FIP has made great strides in establishing world-class polo tournaments and raising international awareness of the sport.

FIP polo tournaments are played at a 14-goal level, due to the challenges associated with mounting high-goal teams internationally, and in order to provide opportunities to up-and-coming players from participating nations. Tournaments are played on horses provided by the country hosting the tournament, and in the interest of fairness, all horses are entered into a pool, from which the teams draw their playing strings. Derek Wolstenholme, a long-time supporter of Team Canada and an Ambassador to FIP, has attended numerous FIP playoffs and championships, and feels that the

horse pool system provides the fairest approach to measuring players’ riding and playing abilities: “It is a strong requirement that each member of the team be capable of performing at their highest level on horses that are completely foreign to them.”

The first FIP World Polo Championship was played in Buenos Aires in 1987, with Argentina defeating Mexico to take the championship. Successive World Polo Championships were held every three years, in host countries such as Berlin, Chile, and Switzerland. In 1998, the 5th Polo World Championship landed on North American soil, at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in California. As an increasing number of international teams joined the FIP, a world-wide Zone Playoff system was established to draw the best teams from different zones to the World Championships. In Zone A, Canada, the U.S., Guatemala, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic face off in a demanding qualifying tournament. Canada first qualified in their Zone Playoffs to advance to the FIP World Championship in 2001. Several players on Team Canada who travelled to Melbourne, Australia, were Calgary Polo Club-based players, including Fred H. Mannix, Daniel Roenisch, and Steve Dalton.

Polo Team Canada continued their road to FIP success in 2007, by beating out the four other Zone A teams to win the Qualifying Playoffs in Costa Careyes, Mexico. The team was anchored by Marcelo R. Abbiati, a 5-goal player from Priddis, Alberta. Abbiati, who received MVP honours, was joined on the winning team by another Calgary-based player, Kyle Fargey, the current Director of the Calgary Polo & Riding Academy. The entire Canadian team—Marcelo R. Abbiati, Brandon Phillips, Kyle Fargey, Robert Stenzel, and Cody Offen—were recognized for their skill and determination in the game, and for their sportsmanship throughout the tournament. The team travelled to Mexico City in 2008 to play in the World Championship,

The FIP World Championship has offered several Calgary Polo Club members and players amazing opportunities to experience polo at an international level, to represent their country, and to establish friendships in polo communities world-wide. Derek Wolstenholme and Don Pennycook, another long-time supporter of Team Canada and Ambassador to FIP, suggest that FIP provides polo players a great incentive. “The opportunity to get international-level recognition for your talents and abilities at FIP is nearly impossible in other equine-related disciplines. It’s a great sporting occasion and we are proud to support Team Canada in all its efforts to advance in the sport of polo.”

again representing Canada well both on and off the field; however, they did not qualify for the tournament semi-finals, and Chile swept the championship in the final.

The Zone A Playoffs for the 2012 World Championship recently took place in the Dominican Republic, and Calgary had two strong representatives on the team: Marcelo R. Abbiati and Dayelle Fargey, a 1-goal professional player, who had previous experience as a team alternate in international FIP polo. Canada and the U.S. battled for a qualifying spot in the World Cup Final and it was a close game, with Canada up by three goals in the first half. Team USA, however, came on strong in the second half, eventually winning with a score of 10–8.

In seeking out candidates for the team, Wolstenholme canvasses clubs across the country, asking for nominations for players who are rated 1 to 5 goals. On top of their horsemanship and playing abilities, these players are expected to serve as ambassadors of Canada at all FIP events. An official crest was created for Polo Team Canada, and each playing member is presented with a crested Canadian blazer at the start of official FIP tournament events.

Canada’s future in the FIP is strong. There is a movement to bring Zone A Playoffs and, eventually, FIP World Polo Championships, to Canada. The Calgary Polo Club hopes to continue to participate in this important international organization, by sending its best players and members as ambassadors to represent Canadian polo to the world.

SIDELINES

Tailgating Guide Survival

Tailgating is a part of many great North American sporting events. But as with everything polo-related, tailgating at a polo match has its own personality. In Alberta, tailgating at polo doesn’t feel quite like a relative of the stadium parking-lot tailgating party, but it’s not all hats and gloves, either. Tailgating at the Calgary Polo Club is a descendant of its a rural, Western roots. Perched at the edge of the Rocky Mountain foothills in the heart of ranch country, the Calgary Polo Club facilities cater to the most formal of events in the Ranch House, but there is equal space given to the most casual sideline mixer: the tailgate party.

with a great view of the action, simply drop your tailgate (or pop your trunk) and unload all your supplies from the tailgate survival checklist. No matter what you bring to feast on, the best tailgating experience has four very simple ingredients: good friends, good food, your beverage of choice, and the pounding hooves of high-stakes polo just a few metres away.

The polo club’s main field has a great western berm overlooking the action. On the east side of the main fields, you will find horse trailers, trucks, cars, and people—lots of people—pulling up to watch polo and engage in one of the best sideline polo experiences: tailgating. Once you find a spot

Sidelines

Tailgating at the Calgary Polo Club varies from casual lawn chair chips and dips, to formal luncheon spreads under tents and umbrellas. Anything goes, as long as you are with a great group of sport and horse enthusiasts gathering together to cheer on their favourite players (and mounts). But just because it’s casual doesn’t mean that it can’t be delicious. Behold, the best summer salad you will have this year:

CPC Summer Salad (serves 6-8)

1 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped 1 red pepper, chopped 1 cup red onion, chopped 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled 1 cup toasted slivered almonds 1½ cups orzo pasta (measure when uncooked) For the dressing: ¾ cup olive oil ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

Tailgate Survival

The Holey Dollar that inspired our logo Macquarie adopted its name from Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the man responsible for transforming the early settlement in Australia from a penal colony into a dynamic economy. Governor Macquarie introduced the Holey Dollar in 1813 as the colony’s first domestic coinage. He overcame an acute currency shortage by purchasing Spanish silver dollars, punching out the centres and creating the Holey Dollar and the Dump. This doubled the number of coins in circulation, increased their worth by 25 per cent and prevented them from leaving the colony. The Holey Dollar was an inspired solution to a difficult problem and, for this reason, it was chosen as our symbol.
