On August 11, 2018 was held Polo avec Coeur, an exciting event in support of two world class institutions, among them: the Montreal Heart Institute.
Think of a sunny afternoon sipping champagne and wine with a group of friends – then you hear it – the crack of a polo mallet hitting a ball and the thunder of hoof beats as the horses and their riders tear down a polo field the size of nine football fields hoping to score with their opponents in hot pursuit!
Polo avec Cœur started with a champagne reception and lunch with wine and beer included at tented tables catered by one of Montreal’s fine caterers.
Two polo games with amateur players from the Montreal and Ottawa area as well as professional players from Argentina who have played in Argentina, the USA, Australia and Europe entertained the guests with some of the fastest, most exciting polo that can be seen in Canada. For the ladies, a "Best Hat" contest took place, with the award announced between the two games. Guests were entertained by the Camerons Regimental Pipe Band and a parade of mares and their young foals, ranging from 6 weeks to 3 months old!
The event took place at the polo fields located on route 201 (exit 17 off of Highway 40) in the St. Lazare-Hudson—Rigaud-Ste-Marthe area, about 45 minutes from downtown Montreal and less than 1½ hours from Ottawa.
