TRAVELLING for the Queensland State Polocrosse Championships can be an arduous task, but for Tambo players it's a non issue.
The representatives of Tambo are one of the most travelled teams in this year's championship.
With their players ranging from Jedburgh, which is 1142km north-west of Warwick, all the way to Moree, they are one of the more diverse and travelled teams in the competition.
Most would think a 1000-plus kilometre hike would be a deterrent, but not Isabella Elmes.
"I have been playing polocrosse for 25 years and I have been to most state championships," Isabella said.
"Most trips for us are overnight trips, because anything more than 700km in one sitting is too much for the horse."
Even more impressive is the record of Tambo player Sarah Steer.
"I have been playing polocrosse for the past 34 years, since I was five, and I have only missed two state championships because I was in Mt Isa for two years," Ms Steer said.
This epic journey shows the dedication of these athletes, and to do the long distances with trailers and horses in tow, just proves their commitment.
As Ms Elmes said: "We do the trip and play for the love of the sport, and that is enough."
