Samira Aljufrie, Founder of Bali Polo Club
"A horse gallops with his lungs, perseveres with his heart,
and wins with his character. The essential joy of being
with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare
elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom."
Coming from the olden days, polo is known to be "the game of kings". It has been practiced and enjoyed by the royalties of the past, from the ancient tribes of Mongolia to the clans of Persia. There existed a profound fascination among the nobles of yesterday with this peculiar sport. Coming from the same feelings of fascination and enjoyment towards polo, thus did Bali Polo Club come into emergence.

Mrs. Samira holds a deep passion for polo and is well-known within the polo scene of Indonesia.Read More
