After completing the two North American five-stars at Kentucky and Maryland last year, Emily Hamel and her spring-loaded partner Corvett will be hopping across the pond to contest Badminton this spring and then they plan to stay and train in England through September to contest Burghley as well! It’ll be great fun to watch this talented pair take on these iconic courses, and anyone interesting in supporting their journey can check out Emily’s website here.

Black History Bit of the Day:

Meet Neku Atawodi of Nigeria, the first Black woman to play polo professionally. After working her way into the sport through mucking stalls, Neku began playing professionally at the age of 21 and her career led her to play in tournaments across 16 countries. After retiring from polo professionally, she’s made a splash in the African tech and entrepreneurship scene.
