This Polo Swing Tip might seem strange - but when I say don't flatten your mallet in the downswing, it's for very good reason!

Why? Well, do you find that you slice your shots? If you do - it's very likely because you are flattening your wrist as you swing down.

Here behind me you can see the boom that will be a hose coming over this wash Bay, that we're creating for the horses. It's actually a really nice wash Bay. You can see down here that there's a trough, and the tethering line here that the horses will be tied to.
