    Ground Cover

    New mallets are expensive, so taking care of them makes good economical sense. Since mallets are made of natural materials, moisture can wreak havoc on the them. Polo players like having quick and easy access to their mallets during a game but throwing them on the ground is not a good idea, especially when the grass is glistening with a fresh layer of morning dew.

    Magic Mat™ provides a barrier between the grass and your mallets so you can lay them out before you play. The 8-foot by 10-foot mat allows air and light to pass through it so it won't kill the grass. It is tough yet attractive, is easy to keep clean, and is simple to roll up and throw in the trailer for easy storage. With grommets every two feet, it is easy to anchor if needed.

    Magic Mat™ is also great for laying out your tack, boots knee guards and polo jerseys before and after games. Magic Mat™ sells for just $65.00 plus shipping. Made by Horseflynet™, the company also makes fly barriers, compost covers, hay shade covers and more. Best of all, its made in the USA. To order, go to www.horseflynet.com or call 434-973-0121
