Equestrian pursuits in the Philippines

Equestrian pursuits in the Philippines have been popular since time immemorial, but none more so than the country’s horse racing and polo.

EIAF recently organised a charter to the Philippines which included a wide range of polo ponies, racehorses, broodmares and the thoroughbred stallion Keep The Faith (sire of the multiple Group One winning racehorse Trust In A Gust who is now standing at Swettenham Stud in Victoria).

The horses all arrived in immaculate condition and including the valuable Medaglia d’Oro colt which is owned by Mr Jun Almeda, who was on hand at Manila airport to greet his new acquisition.

Meanwhile, the polo ponies – Manila Polo and Equestrian Club – will be put to very good use in the months and years to come.
