Sarah Tallents / UK Donations
Sarah Tallents has had horses for most of her life and although she pursued a long career in Finance spanning over 25 years, she never lost her passion for horses. Sarah developed a love of Polo late in life after she was given a 16 year old Argentinian Polo Pony called “Eva” at the age of 42 by Howard Hipwood a former 9 goaler and England Polo Captain. This began Sarah’s love of Polo and in particular Polo Ponies. In June 2013 she set up the Facebook group “Retired and Ex Polo Ponies For Sale” which is an online forum for players and owners to rehome their ponies when they came out of Polo and needed to go into non playing homes. With over 4300 members in the group and 380 ponies rehomed in September 2015 Sarah set up the Charity “Polo Pastures” to not only continue the rehoming work she had done but to also start doing “Equine Assisted Therapies” with the retired Polo Ponies on her farm in Hampshire, England. If you would like to donate a polo pony that needs a new life she can be reached using the form below, or contacted on +44 7850 328985 President of FIP (Federation of International Polo) Nicholas Colquhoun-Denver stated to Sarah, “Polo Pastures is a very worthy cause and on behalf of the polo community I would like to thank you for such dedication. Keep up the good work”.
