The Polo season has officially begun! Saturday 3rd September saw the first practice match of the new season at Puesto Viejo. It was not the only first either as for the first time spectators were able to watch the game from the new Clubhouse. Although the interiors still need a few finishing touches, guests and members were certainly able to get a good feel for what this new building will bring to the Puesto Viejo polo experience!
On Cancha 3, the Blue team (Jeremy Baker, Luis Gutirrez, Danny Ruiz and Mike Reynal) took on the White team (Hernan Dotzel, Juan, Lucas Torales and Fernando Nieto). As to be expected on the first game of the season, the horses were pretty fresh and Lucas Torales’ mare performed a few acrobatic kicks throughout the match! Despite a strong start from the Whites, the Blues took over in the 4th chukka with a victory of 4/3.
A great game and fantastic weather….roll on the first tournament!
