Why is Madonna horsing around in Palm Beach?
It may come as no surprise to her millions of fans to find out that Madonna likes horses.
She’s certainly got the legs for riding.
But polo ponies? Whacking little balls around with a wooden mallet?
Wait, I’m starting to see the appeal …
Seems the freshly free Madonna may soon be watching a bit of polo at the hoity-toity, upper-crusty FTI Wellington Equestrian Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
According to my old friend Sharon Robb at the Sun-Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale, Madonna has been working with British riding coach Daisy Trayford at the SF multimillion-dollar 14-ring facility.
Madonna was rumored to make an appearance at Sunday’s $50,000 Equisport Agency Grand Prix. She was spotted by Dish Rag spies at the Equestrian Center this weekend, checking out the scene but mentioned she might not make an appearance in the stands due to press and photographers.
Our source says: “Madonna was in a box with a few other adults at the table watching the horses jump. She had an orange hat on with her hair pulled back. I did not see any kids with her or A-Rod. I know that she is here for two weeks with her trainer.”
According to Robb’s report, Trayford has worked with Madonna since she purchased two horses from Trayford’s Exmoor Eventing.
If she does come to some events, she won’t be lonely.
Robb sez rocker Bruce Springsteen may attend to watch his daughter Jessica and Big Apple Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg could turn up to see daughter Georgina. CNN chatter Lou Dobbs might come to watch daughter Hillary.
