MIKE TACKLES GIDDY CHALLENGE
FORMER English rugby captain Mike Tindall has decided to live out the motto: “If you can’t beat them, join them” by taking up polo.
But at his first riding lesson, it was hard to tell if he was more uncomfortable wearing the outfit or sitting on the horse.
“This is the first time in my life I have put white jeans on,” he said as wife and polo trainer Zara Tindall, the Queen’s granddaughter and Olympic horsewoman, looked on with a broad knowing smile.
His objective, carried out at a secret training ground in the Cotswolds in the English countryside, was to be able to play at the Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo on the Gold Coast in January.
