POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N 29 earlier two-pointer, her ninth point. Drumcliffe had done it again, defeating UVA, 17-6. Maddie's efforts earned her MVP honors and her fourth chukker horse, Sydney, a 7-year-old chestnut mare, was honored as Best Playing Pony. Maddie was unsure if the horse would be a good fit at first. "She has the biggest personality in the barn," Maddie Grant told USPA. "She eats everything; she even ate Sophie's phone once! And she loves to be pet and be fed treats." It was refreshing to watch the Grant girls displaying unselfish, disciplined polo throughout the match. "You see a lot of brothers playing together because the big polo families are all men," Abbie Grant said. "We are a team of all women, three sisters, who can play together, perform well together and accomplish goals together and that is really powerful for little girls to see."
