Polo in the Park Ottawa - August 27, 2016

 

 

The Rotary Club of Ottawa South  partnered with Wesley Clover Parks and the Ottawa Polo Club had fun for the entire family this past weekend with the second annual Polo in the Park fundraising event to benefit the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and TROtt (Therapeutic Riding Association of Ottawa-Carleton).

 

This fun-filled family, day-long schedule of activities featured aboriginal dancing, horse and dog demonstrations, a hat contest, and a Polo match between Ottawa and Toronto! I was invited back again this year to showcase my Camargue collection and my latest Sable Island Collection at my Horsesatliberty booth as part of the Boutique Vendors.

The Beading Drum Jewelry Originals . She made me a beautiful fascinator to wear!)

 

I was thrilled with the turnout and positive feedback that I received from people that visited my booth and from the organizers of the show. Amazing how a polo match can bring together so many wonderful people, and everyone dressed up in their beautiful outfits and fancy hats and fascinators !
