Bikini What???

Bikini What???

That's what I said when my girlfriend asked if I was interested in competing in Bikini Polo.  I'd never heard of such a thing. As an event promoter, she was always looking for something new and fun to keep the audience entertained.  I thought about it, decided it sounded like fun, but knew there was no possible way I was going to be in a bikini on a horse in front of a crowd.  

 
 
Still, she needed practice dummies so she could do some dry runs.  That much I could do.  Having horses that do anything you ask means that you throw everything at them.  I wrangled my friends Laura and Baleigh into it and we showed up dressed to kill!  
 
It was a blast!  More or less soccer on horseback, using a good sized ball and mallets.  We kept it fairly civil, only slightly cut throat with a few elbows to the ribs and brooms to the rumps of horses.  
 
I had Patti, as at that time Ruby was fairly green and I trusted Patti …
