The Four Horsemen tells the true Australian story of four Ashton brothers who grew up in the NSW outback in the 1920s and together formed a polo team. After eventually dominating Australian polo, the brothers set out to take on the English and American polo worlds at the height of the sport’s glamour.
Against the backdrop of the great depression, they risked everything they had to ship a string of 25 polo ponies across two continents on their quest to prove their mettle.
It remains one of the riskiest ventures in Australia’s sporting history, and a story that has been virtually untold until now.
Featuring interviews with the Ashton family, polo historians and past greats of the game, never before seen archival footage and reenactments shot on location in England, USA, and Australia, the Four Horsemen is a celebration of a great Australian story. Documentary 50:22 Austrailia
