Polo by George Wright

Ref: SPIC09

A very ancient game is polo. The Persians began it in 600 B.C. and the Tartars came along and competed with them. It came to GB via India. They called it "Hockey on Horseback". In 1871 the 10th Hussars and the 9th Lancers played a desperate game on Hounslow Heath before "all fashionable London," as the old account has it.
