mate, Mohammed Bin Drai, was named Most Valuable Player. He was
presented with a pair of really high-quality looking polo boots and kneepads
by Luxury brand La Martina. Cartier’s Juan Jose Brane received a beautiful
La Martina saddle for the Best Playing Pony fromCharlotte Casiraghi. The
striking pony, Sybarita, is owned by Saeed Bin Drai and was played by Brane
in the final chukka. After the main presentations HH Sheikh Mansour and
Ali Albwardy presented a cheque to Satish Seemar, Director of the Riding
for the Disabled Association of Dubai which is based at Desert Palm.
These generous prizes were in keeping with the truly extravagant hospitality
we had been treated to. Polo is a fantastic sport to watch. But it was the whole
atmosphere of the event - surrounded by sophistication and elegance on all
sides - that turned it into a magical experience.
