Argentina ( Best airport: Cordoba)
Fun, fast and exciting, polo is a competitive team sport that combines good horsemanship with tactics and ball skills. Los Potreros polo weeks allow you to try this fabulous game in a truly unique environment, whilst not breaking the bank at the same time. Argentina has the best polo players in the world and so what better place to start? If you have never tried it, we should warn you that polo is highly addictive, and it may be the start of an extremely expensive habit!
Level of Riding and Fitness
Polo weeks are aimed at the beginner, novice, or occasional player who wishes to learn how to play, brush up their skills or just have some fun in an informal and friendly environment. Half-day polo sessions are combined with stunning trail rides out into the estancia on fabulous horses, so combining two amazing holidays in one!
