    - - Polo ponies and riders wear a lot of kit! Ponies have bandages as well as boots for extra protection against stray balls, and competition bridles typically include a gag, two nosebands, a standing martingale plus draw reins. Riders wear protective pads on their joints, carry four reins and a whip in one hand and a polo stick in the other. One heck of a lot of gear! Fiona Price meets polo star Mark Tomlinson and watches his pony being tacked up whilst he explains. Mark then dons his competition gear for the camera. Being a complete 'polo virgin' Fiona is both educated and entertained. In her opinion Mark resembles Darth Vader! May the force be with him!!
