Young Indigenous stockmen saddle up for polo

7 March 2013 by Luke McCormick

The 2013 Pinctada Cable Beach Polo will feature the inaugural Kimberley Challenge as one of the showcase matches of its tournament. The Kimberley Challenge will see young Indigenous stockmen team up with leading polo players and has been developed to introduce the sport of polo to young riders in the Kimberley.

Matt Welsh, Captain of the Swan Valley Polo Club, will oversee the training of the young stockmen in the skills of polo with the help of other experienced polo players. The stockmen will also be vying for the inaugural Swan Valley Polo Club Scholarship, which will be awarded to the player who demonstrates outstanding horsemanship and polo skills as well as sportsmanship and a willingness to learn.

Pinctada Cable Beach Polo 2013 will be played on the sweeping sands of Broome's iconic Cable Beach on the weekend of May 18-19. The tournament, which is the cornerstone of the Pinctada Cable Beach Polo Festival, will feature four beach polo matches, including an international clash. The Kimberley Challenge will headline Saturday's action. The event is free to watch picnic-style from the beach or tickets can be purchased to the VIP beach marquee.
