My cousin has taken up polo and consequently I've just discovered it is Awesome!! It can turn into a very fierce sport near the goals but the animals are treated with so much respect.

Hmmm so far as I know horse racing is still 'the sport of kings', though of course royals do play polo - they're virtually the only ones who can afford it!

that arc of the mallet is sublime suggesting all that power of horse and rider tansferred into the ball, love the juxtaposed black and white horses and the black and white shot 8

This is a very nice catch of the action. Really building up the suspense with what will happen when he hits the ball.

Love the way you captured the curve of the stick in motion here. The horse and rider in the background are a bit of a distraction, but that doesn't stop me from giving a high score. :)
