When I got the news that La Sarita had won the Thai Open, I was truly overcome by emotion. The 2012 Thai Open marked the first full 14-goal season that my dad will be participating in following his 1.5 year battle with cancer. There’s no words to explain a fairytale beginning like this. I say beginning because it marks a new chapter in my dad’s polo career and there is no better way to start it off. The Thai Polo Club is a fantastic club that organizes some excellent tournaments and I can’t wait to play in Thailand once again in the near future!

On my side, I have been playing the Winter indoor season out in Brookshire. I am playing for Mr Philip Limon and helping to get his horses fit for the outdoor season which starts in mid-March. Here is a picture of Philip and I together before the game at the ERG Arena on Friday:
On Sunday, we played outdoors at Mark Prinsloo’s place. Mark is a phenomenal guy and his life’s mission is to promote polo amongst the youth and introduce many people to our incredible sport. Here are a few snaps I took (PS. YOU CAN NOW FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: ameerj):
