who has won numerous awards, including Gold Coast.
Like Llewellyn, Burrell, who lives in Chicago, spends most of the winter in Wellington riding, competing, and enjoying the variety of events such as this year’s Bluhammock party. Many turned out for the polo matches, including the Ylvisaker Cup that featured the Argentine champion Adolfo Cambiaso, regarded as the Tiger Woods of Polo.
As for Llewellyn, nothing compares with the experience of actually riding. “It’s escapism,” she says. Now in training, she heads to a barn in New York City every day at 4:15 a.m. “There’s nothing else like it. It’s my Zen Buddha time.”
