Lanlivery Vintage Rally & Country Fair

By rpba18205
Lanliveryís 26th Annual Vintage Rally and Country Fair.
This is an annual event held on 2nd weekend of each September. Steam engines, vintage vehicles, vintage working section, old time fun fair, craft tents, beer tents, dancing diggers, dog shows etc
Three shots of a ball game played on horseback. Iíve no idea of what it is called or what the rules are. It seems to consist of two teams of two riders with nets on poles, catching a ball and scoring goals or points. I couldnít make head or tails of it but the spectators seemed to really enjoy it. Maybe someone can put a name to it.

I think Malc is onto something there Rob, it was just what I was about to say. I doubt the posh polo playing purists in the Cotswolds would be too impressed with this version though! lol You've captured the action superbly in this series

This game is called Polo-Crosse
A combination of polo and lacrosse played on horseback by teams of three players armed with polo-type sticks with nets played on a field 146 m◊54 m. The ponies used must not be taller than 15 hands.

GREAT series of shots. I like this
