After viewing a polo game in 1904, Frederic Remington had an idea. Remington decided to proceed full speed ahead doing a subject that was outside his usual line. Remington an expert in horse racing, horse shows, and of polo matches, from his perspective believed, a hard-hitting polo match was what battle should be. All the elements of close combat, horsemanship, skill, self-sacrifice and courage, risk and danger with out the intention of bloodshed. Polo, only two lifetime castings.
