(KTVI)-For one family in St. Louis, the game of polo is a family affair. St. Louis Polo Club team member Doug Sansone has a love of horses that drew him to the fast-paced sport. Calling it “hockey on horseback," Doug says the sport is physical and demanding.

Wife, Molly Sansone, also is on the team. Their two oldest daughters play as well. Men, women, and children all play in the same games.

The St. Louis Polo Club sponsors several charity matches throughout the year. On September 13, the club will host a fundraiser for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. The public is invited to attend. Matches are held in Defiance, MO.
