House of Eléonore’s Polo weekend 2017

THE polo event of the year was there for House of Eléonore. This year they had their own team sponsored. I’ve been visiting and playing polo in the last year, and it felt great to see it again this weekend. It’s a very unique sport and it always feels like a relaxing day, drinking a wine or champagne, and enjoying the great weather with your family and friends.

Did you know that:

  • The Netherlands has only 60 active polo players.
  • Every player needs, at least, 4 horses per match (because the match exist of 4 parts).
  • Every polo player has a handicap that ranges from -2 till 10 (10 is the best)
  • The Netherlands has only 4 clubs.
  • Every body can play polo, if you have a horse or not! Just call Polo Club Midden Nederland and you can organize a training yourself.

Prix de Diane 2017

Prix de Diane is one of the greatest events I’ve been to. Together with my friends, I went to these horse races. Wearing a head is obliged for woman, so it was time to buy a great head and to not be shy wearing it. I adore woman who dress up well, and a head is such an elegant and artistic expression of fashion. I’ve never seen so many people together dressed up so elegantly. I could definitely recommend fashion lovers to go to Prix de Diane at Chantilly, France to observe these amazing styles between watching the horse races.

It was very warm today, so unfortunately I didnt photograph a lot. I hope I can be there next year, because I love horses and the special events around it (like the polo match in Chantilly and The Netherlands)

Chantilly Rallye d’Aumale 2017

The weekend of 9 april 2017 couldn’t be better by visiting the Polo & Rally event in Chantilly together with my friends and new teammates of polo Team Architects. A perfect Sunday with no clouds, only blue sky, relaxing atmosphere and stunning outfits walking by while watching the polo match and the oldtimer cars arriving from their rally concours. A bottle of cold champagne is popped open after the picnic lunch. How much fun was this day! I feel happy and blessed. When we drove back home to Paris, we listened to Take on me – Aha and to the following song of Nina Simone:
