Rules to play Equestrianism
Polo saddles are English style and feature a breastplate, usually attached to the front billet. The breastplate is necessary for safety since a tie down standing martingale, or head check is often used. The tie down is generally supported by a neck strap. The stirrup irons tend to be heavier than most, and the stirrup leathers are wider and thicker.The ponys legs are wrapped, from below the knee to the fetlock, with polo wraps for injury prevention. In most cases, they match the team colors. The mane is roached shaved to the neck and the tail is braided so that the players mallet wont catch it. The pony also has a bit and, frequently, two sets of reins for the ultimate in control.
