Photo: Scottsdale Polo Championships

The Scottsdale Polo Championships are laid out with tail gaters on one side of the field, and tents for spectators on the other side, as shown in this photo.

One of my two stepsons lives in Buenos Aires, and we have gone to the Palermo Abierto Polo Championships there several times.   It is a tournament that lasts several weeks and is the Super Bowl of polo. There is a large stadium full of people and many more goals are scored in each match.

Despite the differences, Horses and Horsepower in Scottsdale is an enjoyable special event.  Tomorrow I will show you a rather unique way to amuse oneself during the break between matches.

This week we have photos of the folk art of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
