What you can expect
Spend an action-packed day learning the sport of kings, all in the perfect setting of a grand estate in the scenic Argentine countryside. Your time on the grassy field includes a pair of polo lessons with an expert instructor, who gives you a look at how the professionals play the game.
A private car picks you up from your hotel and carries you out of busy Buenos Aires, heading across the verdant countryside. When you arrive at the beautiful Puesto Viejo estate, meet polo master Julio Casares, who can draw on a decade's worth of professional polo experience to show you the secrets and techniques of the elite sport like no other.
After some freshly brewed coffee, tea, and assorted cakes, get a tour of the stables and the ranch, and then take your polo mallet in hand and climb onto your horse to get in the game. Your first lesson gives you a feel for the basics of the sport, before you break for lunch with some homemade Argentine barbecue served under the trees.
Once you finish your meal, take some time to explore the estate by foot or bike, or relax by the infinity pool. The second lesson of the day is tailored to suit your group's preferences, and then you can show off your new skills in a miniature match. On days when professional teams frequent the estate, you can check out one of their fast-paced matches as well, and even participate by throwing the ball and ringing the chukker bell before the drive back to Buenos Aires.
