Polo Match

In June, my great friend Emily took me to the Annual Pharmacy Cup Polo Match and Champagne Brunch.
If you’ve ever seen the film “Pretty Woman,” you undoubtedly remember the scene when Julia Roberts attends a polo match with Richard Gere. Attending this match was very much like the movie.  We were served cocktails, lobster, prime rib, countless tasty treats, and much more at our tables covered with white linen and fresh flowers.  It was entertaining to observe everyone's outfits and big hats, too. Polo is now one of my most favorite sporting events to attend!
Emily's father plays polo and a friend who used to work on their farm in Georgia is now a professional polo player who travels all over the world with the sport.  So, I got to meet her old friend Ruben and we had the VIP treatmenet meeting the horses and trainers.

This was Henry's first polo match
