Cape Hunt and Polo Club



The Cape Hunt (Founded 1822) follows a long tradition of riding to hounds in the Cape, going back over a 180 years. The Cape Hunt holds the distinction of being the oldest of the 'new world' hunts dating back to 1822. The first Cape Hunt foxhounds originated from the English Beaufort Hunt and were imported into South Africa by the then Cape Governor, Lord Charles Somerset.

Polo is arguably the oldest recorded team sport in known history, with the first matches being played in Persia over 2500 years ago. Initially thought to have been created by competing tribes of Central Asia, it was quickly taken up as a training method for the King’s elite cavalry. These matches could resemble a battle with up to 100 men to a side.

The modern game was invented in Australia before the Second World War. In 1938 Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hirst of Sydney read an article in an English Horse Magazine on Polo Crosse. The game was first played in England in an indoor arena and was then designed to improve students’ riding skills.
