The 2015 World Cup hosted by South Africa has come and gone.  After several exciting and tough games, the Untied States placed 7th.  Everybody wants to win, but there can only be one winner.  For the second time in a row, South Africa went home with the cup, and it was well deserved.  Zambia finished 2nd, followed by Australia and then the UK.  5th place went to New Zealand, then Zimbabwe, we finished 7th and finally, Ireland finished 8th.  It is always incredible to be involved in such a big international competition.  Now it is time for all the countries to go home, analyze their play, and begin to plan for the the 2019 World Cup.

 

The United States is already working towards improving their riders with Horsemanship clinics.  Over the next few years, a team will be built, their skills will be fine tuned, and they will head off to the next World Cup in Warwick, Australia in hopes of finishing on top.  Stay tuned to hear about more updates and what the team is doing to prepare.  


Dori, personally, trains at home in the winter on her own horses.  She has a Thoroughbred mare and two Australian Stock Horses.  Throughout the Spring and Fall, Dori travels to competitions around the country and close to home, in Texas.  Over the summer, she normally travels North to beat the heat and likes to compete in Maryland, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.  Each year, Dori takes an international trip to continue to learn and fine tune her game play and skills.  With two World Cups under her belt, Dori has hops of making the next US Polocrosse Team.  There are numerous talented young women coming up within the American Polocrosse Association who continue to push and challenge each other.  It will be exciting to see who is on the next team.  No doubt, it will be very competitive.
