When asked to create a platform on which the Urban Polo Association (UPA) could creatively explore and document what it means to be a part of the modern polo world, my mind instantly went to my teenage bible – Jilly Cooper’s infamous ’80s novel, Polo, which I stole from my mother’s bedside table at 16. Enthralled doesn’t begin to explain my infatuation with the characters, and the glitz and glamour she describes as the international polo circuit.

We met with Australia’s top polo player, Ric McCarthy, on his passion for playing polo – the fitness, finesse and family involved in the sport

In this Year of The Horse, The Polo Project’s list of reputable international influencers and contributors met the subject with enthusiasm – from our obsession with Charlotte Casiraghi and the house of Gucci’s rich equestrian history, to the divine portrayal of Swedish horse whisperer Linnea Arrflot by New York-based photographer Nick Hudson, capturing raw beauty and natural horsemanship. We met with Australia’s top polo player, Ric McCarthy, on his passion for playing polo – the fitness, finesse and family involved in the sport – all captured on his breathtaking property in Illabo, NSW. We collaborated with men’s luxury lifestyle website Oliver Grand to talk tips on how to pack for an international lifestyle, looking suave at all times.

From directors to designers, royalty to socialites, restaurateurs to style-makers from across the globe – we hope you enjoy the journey as we define a life of sport and style.
