Elephant Polo is my new thing | Golden Triangle, Thailand | You might say, Carlos is Argentinean, therefore Polo carries on his veins… but how about going a bit further, bigger and taller… how about Elephant Polo. It sounds quite eccentric right. Thanks to the Four Seasons Tented Camps Golden Triangle in the northern region of Thailand, I can say this this my new thing. Those of you following my blog regularly, know my weakness and devotion for Elephants, so I was quite intrigued and happy when this activity was proposed to me on my last visit to the camp.
A whole different set of rules. To sets of 7 minutes each, to preserve both the elephants – priority – and the players. I would have never guessed that elephants could run so fast. Elephant Polo can be quite exhausting, specially under the blazing sun of the Golden Triangle. I was lucky enough to play with the top and experienced players of the Four Seasons Team.
One of the many activities you can do at the Four Seasons Tented Camp, along with Training to become a Mahout or Sunrise Walk with these gentle giants. Please have a look at my LIVE interview with John Roberts – Director at Golden Triangle Asian Elephants Foundation. Please like their facebook pages, help me spread the word about them worldwide and show your support to their amazing work taking the elephants out of the streets of Thailand.
