Sidelines Magazine IS the People Magazine of the horse world! Nacho Figueras appeared on the cover of the November issue of Sidelines along with a four-page story on the polo player and Ralph Lauren model. The story featured a photo of Nacho in a blue polo shirt sitting on a boat. A month later People Magazine used the same photo of Nacho in their “Sexiest Man Alive” issue. Way to go Sidelines for scooping People Magazine!
Jerry Spitler, fiancé of Sidelines publisher Samantha Charles, had a little scare with some chest pains while out duck hunting in North Dakota not too long ago. With a little stent, he is back in business. We are relieved to know he is well and back at it. We wish him a quick return to riding so he can hunt his gorgeous new Canadian Sport horse the Duke of Earl.
U.S. Polo Association has selected eight new standout players to the 2013 Team USPA Development Program. The prestigious Team USPA program was established two years ago to help advance the sport of polo by identifying talented young American players and giving them an opportunity to develop and refine their skills. Team USPA’s eight new players – seven males and one female – are all participating in the USPA Intercollegiate/Interscholastic program and currently play for their respective college or high school programs. The eight new Team USPA members are: Daniel Galindo, of Thermal, California; Jeff Shuler, of Aiken, South Carolina; Kylie Sheehan, of Owings Mills, Maryland; Harrison Samaniego, of Rancho Santa Fe, California; Miguel Questel, of Campo, California; Devin Vass, of Powell, Ohio; Patrick Uretz, of Malibu, California; and Matthew Collins, of Reisterstown, Maryland.
