Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Cautions Space and Respect Around Polo Ponies

The warnings for spectator enjoyment posted by the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club on their website are fully supported by Chairman and Royal patron Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.  These cautions include reminders to viewers and spectators to be respectful of the space around the polo ponies.  It is never wise to come toward a horse from the back or to exhibit sudden movements, either of which will spook one of these trained animals.
Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club, though exclusive, has occasional events which are open to the public.  Should a spectator enjoy the competition at Ghantoot for the first time, he or she is welcome to enjoy the polo matches with a picnic.  However, all waste and detritus must be removed immediately as scraps which blow upon the polo field distract ponies and riders and constitute a safety concern.
