A true american polo legend!
Q: When and where did you first play bike polo?
A: I started in 1971 on Long Island. My uncle, Barker Hickox, was the polo player in the family, and he talked my grandmother into giving 25 acres to the Polo Training Foundation. They built a couple of fields that were literally in my backyard, and one of the members of the polo club suggested that I start playing bike polo since I didn’t have any polo ponies. We started a team with two other guys my age (15) and one older fellow, who was our designated driver, being the only one with a license. We played a tournament at the end of the summer, losing in the semis by one goal, but won it the next three years.
