Prince Harry is in the centre of a storm this week after his Polo horse was gashed by Prince Harry’s spurs during a Polo Match. Pictures of the injured horse, have earned him a nasty nickname of Dirty Harry! Animal Aid have criticised Prince Harry, saying “Polo is a rough game, and causes stress” to these powerful horses. Palace Officials have suggested that the injury could have been from another rider. They have also confirmed that the horse was fine after the game.
Well, believe what you want this is a very fast and rough game, and its not only the horses that get injured, riders are very often left with cuts,grazes and broken bones.
