Young British talent and leading British polo player, Max Charlton, has recently been named as Land Rover’s first polo ambassador. Having played polo since the age of 11, Charlton now represents his country and has won notable silverware at every level of the sport.
Land Rover UK announced that the 25 year old home-grown talent would join Olympic gold medallists Ben Maher and Laura Tomlinson, as well as World Championship team silver medallists Zara Phillips and Harry Meade, as part of a star-studded selection of equestrian ambassadors.
Charlton, who has been awarded ‘Most Outstanding British Polo Professional’ for two years running, commented on the new relationship, saying ‘To be a Land Rover ambassador is an amazing opportunity for me. Land Rover has such a unique and long associated heritage within equestrian sports. I am really looking forward to working with them in the future.’
Having supported equestrian sport for over 25 years, Land Rover UK has recently celebrated a successful first season as Official Vehicle Partner of Guards Polo Club.
Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK’s Managing Director said ‘It is really exciting to have Max join the Land Rover stable of equestrian ambassadors. His sporting CV at such a young age is truly remarkable – we are proud to be supporting such a wonderfully talented sportsman.’
