What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?
“My proudest accomplishment has been my 3 daughters’ involvement in the sport of polo. Each was taught riding and playing skills as well as horsemanship and good conduct as a competitive player. Each of my daughters is now actively involved in the sport in her own way, carrying on the family tradition in polo.”
