A little story about horses, dresses and jewelry
August 29, 2011 § 3 Comments
Surprised faces – as they saw the beautiful dresses and precious jewelry being presented in the open country field. Together with Argentinean horses, polo helmets, boots and sticks, and a lot of mud.
Elvira Kirsch and Anna Donalli introduced their collections at the Berenberg Polo tournament in Bad Homburg/Oberursel this weekend. We had a great time watching the game, people and graceful animals. I have to admit, I was never the girl who wanted a pony or horse, but I think I want one now. Thank you Elli & Anna for making me dream bigger 😉
May I present – the designer ladies Elvira Kirsch & Anna Donalli posing with the winning team.
Attention! Lessons I learned this weekend: 1) The first polo game was played in Persia (5th Century BC). 2) Polo “ponies” need to be trained so that they are not afraid to bump into other horses and be quick to follow the ball. 3) A “chukka” (round) lasts 7 minutes and it is typical for a single player to have numerous horses and change every chukka due to intensity and speed of the game.
4) During half-time guests are invited to go onto the field to participate in a polo tradition called “divot stamping”.
Enough sport 😉 Michelle, you are wonderful!
