Please see below a recap with photos and video of the fifth La Martina female beach polo tournament, which took place yesterday, Thursday April 25th, on the sands of Miami Beach between 20th and 22nd streets. With 24 female polo players in competition, this event precedes the mens Beach Polo World Cup, which will take place over the course of the next three days.
It was the perfect day to launch my new Equestrian collection, given these fearless and competitive ladies were the very inspiration for my spring/summer collection. Plus it was a beautiful day at the beach: warm, sunny and just the perfect amount of breezy.
BOOTH SET UP
Our Miss Nyet Booth was set up in the VIP area, adjacent to the grandstand, early in the morning.

The award ceremony took place around on the polo field at the end of the day. Winners were presented with the trophy as well as La Martina Polo Helmets and Grey Goose vodka gifts.
I was introduced by the Polo Life emcee to deliver a speech about the launch of my collection, and to present all the participants in the tournament with a new original creation from my Equestrian collection, the Stirrup Choker

Judging by the ladies' reaction on the photo and video below, the choker necklace hit the mark.
Most players put it around their necks right away and gushed that "It was the best present they ever received at this tournament!"
