Information on Horses / XI FIP World Polo Championship 2017
The Sydney Polo Club and World Polo Championship (WPC) team are well on track to deliver an incredible event. WPC are working closely with the Federation of International Polo (FIP) to prepare the tournament and during FIP CEO Alex Taylor’s recent visit to Sydney considerable time was spent on focusing on the technical elements of the event.
For those of you who are kindly providing horses, whether it is an individual horse or a whole string, the FIP and WPC have many initiatives to ensure that horses receive the very best care. These include:
As previously detailed, WPC is offering the following to all horse lenders:
The initial grading process for horses will begin in August, starting in Queensland first. At this time horses will be officially identified and WPC biosecurity measures will be implemented.
Shortly we will be sending out horse registration forms for owners to complete, which will be followed up by:
i) A lease agreement between the owner and WPC; ii) Insurance paperwork for signatures; iii) Further details on logistics and ticketing.
Thank you so much for supporting the XI FIP World Polo Championship Sydney 2017. Without the generosity of each and every one of you, this event would not happen. Anto (02 6546 1121) and Pat (0407 127 473) would love to hear from anyone with any specific questions vis-à-vis suitability of horses for the event and if anyone has any further horses to put forward.
