Galloping Hooves, I Love Your Shoes...



Well, that was a blast! 


 A few weeks ago I talked about being invited over to Celtic Manor to watch the Polo... They had me at VIP and a day out with Mr G to be honest!



That said, I really did have no idea what it would all be about...


We were really surprised how relaxed the event was when our preconceived ideas of Polo were very different. It's so much fun to watch (even though I didn't really get it...?). I did learn that they use ponies, as opposed to horses in Polo, who knew?


Annnnnd, we got to do the divots (Pretty Woman style)...


Mr G and I piggybacked the day as a mini date day... within 10 minutes of parking and before the first sip of Pimms had registered, we'd decided to leave the car and call on my Dad (legend) for the return journey!


Before the matches started, we settled into our surroundings and kept well hydrated (hence the adult headaches on Sunday). The people watching stakes were high...Game on! 


I LOVE it when everyone dresses up and no-one disappointed...Heels, hats, dresses, strong suit games and sun kissed tans!

If you saw my Instagram Stories, you'd have seen Kym and I sporting top buns in the heat!

The Polo is a great alternative to going to the races,  brilliant for girlie day out, corporate days or,  just getting a load of friends together!


I've been spoilt with first class hotels and hospitality events all over the world and there's Celtic Manor, just 40 minutes from home and ticking every box! Their whole package is superb, no doubts! The fact they organised the most incredible weather was just the icing on the perfect Polo event cake!


As with every event I've been to at Celtic Manor, everything was simply perfect! Nothing is too much trouble, staff everywhere willing to look after you, incredible food and we had the added bonus of some great company too! 


If you haven't already, sign up for the Celtic Manor newsletter as they send lots of special offers for stays at the resort, meals and events - sign up here.

The next hot ticket is The Celebrity Cup - this sees some of the biggest names in showbiz and sport swap their day jobs for golf clubs - more info here.



Nice one Polo Manor Style, nice.
