No trip to Argentina is complete without experiencing the nation’s famous sport. Recognizing the importance of polo for visitors, Puesto Viejo Estancia and Polo Club offers Polo Days with our polo professional, Julio Casares. Set in the stunning surroundings of the Argentine countryside, Polo Days give tourists the opportunity to learn more about the game, enjoy two lessons with a professional instructor and the opportunity to watch polo club members play in an adrenaline fuelled match.
Polo Day guests will be collected from the Buenos Aires city centre and travel to the province by private car. Once at Puesto Viejo, guests will meet resident polo professional and bilingual teacher, Julio, and enjoy tea, coffee and assorted cakes. Julio will give an overview of the sport before taking guests on a tour of the stables and the estancia. After initial instruction at ground level, clients will then get up on the horses and try polo first hand.
A delicious lunch of homemade Argentine cuisine will be served under the trees, surrounded by nature and stunning views. After lunch, guests will have the option to explore the estancia on foot or by bike or perhaps just relax by the infinity pool.
The second lesson will start at the leisure of our guests. If guests would like to partake in a mini-match, they will conclude their second lesson with this exciting event.
Coffee, tea and an afternoon snack will be served.
During polo season (September-May), guests will have the chance to watch polo club members and professionals playing a 4-chukker match (sometimes their instructor even partakes in this match!), with Julio or a Puesto Viejo Estancia staff member on hand to talk them through what is going on and answer any questions. Guests will also have the option to get more involved in the game, throwing in the ball and ringing the chukker bell – ideal photo opportunities!
Guests will be taken back to the city, by private car, to share their newfound polo knowledge, skills and stories with friends!
