Forget everything you think you know – Jamie Morrison is making polo cool again. The spritely chairman of the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club may be the son of a music-industry mogul, but he inherited more than just a creative mind and business acumen from his late father, Bryan Morrison. It’s through his sire-line that an unshakable passion for polo was inherited, too.
