What do you love most about the sport?
The horses, the adrenaline, the tactics and the feeling of winning.

What’s the most challenging aspect of polo?
Getting a good string of horses together, and finding higher-level opportunities for women.

Tell us about your horses (or your favorite horse)?
I have a 15, 3 chestnut ex-racehorse (English thoroughbred) called Song. She moves beautifully and I have had her for a long time now. Every time I bring her out, we seem to make goals.

Eggs and avocado 

What’s your favorite thing to do in Santa Barbara when you’re off duty?
It’s my first time, so I am about to find out! However, I love the beach and I want to improve my surfing tekkers, ha-ha!

Argentina next, then Houston and Dubái.
