Celebrity Interview: Jamie Peel

3 Goal Professional Polo Player

Jamie’s home club is Cowdray Park Polo Club. This is where he plays the lion’s share of his polo. Aside from playing, he is the manager of Nick Clarke’s Salkeld team, that amongst other tournaments took part in this year’s prestigious Gold Cup.

His particular passion is for the equine athletes of this sport and he spends much time bringing on young horses in the UK to play at the top level of the sport, both from horses bred in Blighty as well as by retraining racehorses. Recently he also started a fascinating company specifically measuring horses data whilst they are playing- think Nike running app, but for horses. Jamie is a real gentleman player and a true ambassador for the game in the UK.
