Learn and Watch Polo in the Argentine Countryside

Set in the stunning surroundings of the Argentine countryside, Puesto Viejo Polo Days give visitors to Buenos Aires the opportunity to learn more about the game, enjoy a lesson with a professional bi-lingual instructor and watch polo club members play in an adrenaline fuelled match. No previous riding experience is required!

Guests are collected from the city centre in the morning and travel to the province by private car to Puesto Viejo Estancia and Polo Club in Canuelas, less than an hour away. On arrival, they meet resident polo professional and bi-lingual teacher, Gaston Carrozzo, and enjoy the traditional Argentine drink, mate. Gaston gives an overview of the sport before taking them on a tour of the stables and the estancia. Following an initial instruction at ground level, guests then get up on the horses and try polo first hand. After a morning on the field, a well deserved delicious lunch of homemade Argentine cuisine is served under the trees, surrounded by nature and stunning views. After lunch, guests have the option to explore the estancia on foot or by bike or just relax by the infinity pool. Later in the afternoon, a second polo lesson or mini match with Gaston helps guests develop the skills they learned in the morning. Afterwards, guests watch polo club members and professionals playing a 4 chukker match with Gaston on hand to talk them through what is going on and answer any questions. Guests also have the option to get more involved in the game, throwing in the ball and ringing the chukker bell, ideal photo opportunities! Guests are taken back to the city around 7pm, to share their new-found polo knowledge, skills and stories with friends!

Equipment All polo equipment will be provided.
Guests are advised to bring trousers and boots/trainers for riding and swimming things (and towel) if they wish to use the pool.

The best Polo in the world

Argentinians have been the World Champions in Polo since 1949 till today.

Polo has been played in Argentina since 1870.
Soon it became more popular than the all native game of "Pato", that gauchos used to play since 1610, which is rather similar.

Of the more than 3000 Argentine polo players there are, some of them are internacionally well known belonging to the most traditional families from the countryside, such as Bautista, Horacio, Alberto y Eduardo Heguy, Juan Carlos Harriot, Alfredo Harriot, Adolfo Cambiasso, Enrique Alberdi, Juan A. Traill, Mariano Aguerre, Javier Novillo Astrada .

The main teams are:

Coronel Suarez
Indios Chapaleufu (ganador del ultimo Campeonato)
Ellerstina
El Paraiso
La Caniada
Hurlingham
El Trebol
La Espadania
Venado Tuerto
North Santa Fe.


In Buenos Aires city, at the Campo Argentino de Polo, (Av. del Libertador y Dorrego), the world famous championship: Campeonato Argentino Abierto de Polo is played. The championship begins in August, generally in other fields of the Northern area of the Gran Buenos Aires, finishing by December in Palermo.

The US and Great Britain import Argentine polo horses, which have great speed, quality and stamina.

Polo in Palermo

November & December are the best months to watch. I was lucky enough to see the final in December.
Tickets only need to be purchased in advance for the final, but they can be bought outside for a high price.

The best polo in the world

Argentinian players are the main exponents of this sport, that was brought here in 1877.
If you visit Argentina in November or December, you can enjoy the Argentine Open. Like Wimbledon in tennis, it is the most important tournament in the world, as the collective level of players is not seen anywhere else.
