Overview
Our Full Polo Day program is designed for you to become a polo player for the day. Any day of the year! You begin the day with an informative talk about polo and its ponies. While you taste some delicious empanadas and excellent argentine wine, our guide will explain how polo horses are selected for the sport, their blood lineages and how they are trained. You will learn also about the rules of the game, the equipment used by the polo horse and the player and the different shooting techniques. Then you will attend a professional live polo match of 4 chukkas. With more than 30 horses in play, you will enjoy a fast paced polo game of pure adrenaline. In between chukkas, we will visit the pony line and you will learn about how a polo horse is taken care of, its feeding and preparation for a match. We are the only Polo Club to offer a polo game EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. Lunchtime is part of this incredible Argentina Experience, a complete barbeque that includes "asado", a grilled selection of meat and beef, accompanied by premium argentine wines. You will have the unique opportunity to try our delicious regional food (we also have a vegetarian option). After spending some relaxing time at the swimming pool or walking through our beautiful countryside, you will take a polo lesson where you will learn to ride a horse, hold the mallet and hit the ball. Believe it! You will finish your day by sharing a mini polo match that will make you feel like a professional player! It is not necessary to know how to ride a horse, nor do you have to have previous experience in polo. We offer equipment and instruction for all levels. We speak English and Spanish. This Full Polo Day program starts at 10:30hs and ends at 19hs.

This is definitely a must do when you are in Buenos Aires!! The organisation is excellent (pick up at your hotel/place) welcome drink, etc. All the staff is great. The horses are great and they know well enough the horses so that you have fun what ever your level in horse ridding is! You first watch a game and then it is your turn for at least one hour! And the BBQ was just amazing! SO you must surely go and enjoy a day like this!

The whole day is planned really well. I was picked up from my hotel with the transfer and got to meet other guests in the transfer that I would be spending the day with. When we arrived we were given an really good enpanada that was done on the grill, much better than the ones I had tasted in Buenos Aires! This was followed by some good wine. We then watched a polo game between some of the club members and the grooms. It was really fun to watch. After that we had a really good parisia, ( argentinian barbeque). The meat was cooked to perfection and there was so much variety! Definitely a top meal whilst in Argentina! I also enjoyed the never ending flow of wine :) After we had eaten as much as we could we had a quick introduction to polo and a chance to play . The ponies were great and very easy to ride. I have ridden a lot before but there were some guests who had never ridden before but managed fine.

This was probably a once in a lifetime experience for our group of friends. None of us had ever had the opportunity to play polo, and none of us were experienced riders (total beginners actually). I won't repeat all of the positive reviews that are already posted about this great opportunity, but I do agree with them all! I would highly recommend planning this day into your vacation. It was very reasonably priced, and from beginning to end the hospitality was incredible.Although most of our group failed miserably at actually playing polo (it's very hard IMHO), we were offered the opportunity to just ride free around the property with our horses and the staff made sure we got our money-worth! I arrived a total beginner and had my horse cantering by the end of the day!

It was a great day. We where welcomed by the owner with a nice glass of wine! It was fun and interesting to watch a polo game. The BBQ was one of the best ever! Then it was time to play our own game. Hard to hit the ball, but really a lot of fun! Great horses.

What a fantastic way to spend a day outside of Buenos Aires! Never having experienced polo in my life, this was a great introduction to the sport that gave me a newfound respect for the athleticism it requires. And what better way to find this out than by giving it a try yourself - believe me, the pros make it look easy. The couple that operates this company could not have been more welcoming and gracious to their guests - because it is a small operation, the personalized service and attention cannot be duplicated by larger, more touristy events. This was the best tour I did while in Buenos Aires, and the price is right on the money...

I was in town for business and decided to experience one of the famous sports of Buenos Aires during a free day....I'm so glad I did! First off, I'm afraid of horses and have never ridden one but I'm so glad I decided to do this. Everyone at the company is super nice and offered us wine/empanadas as soon as we arrived at the ranch. The next hour consisted of us watching them play competitive game of polo while teaching us rookies about the rules. The following BBQ lunch was delicious and it was fun to be able to kick back and learn more about the Argentinian culture from some true locals. We spent the last hour or so actually riding the horses and playing a "game" which must have looked ridiculous to an outsider since most of our horses were walking -- only because they knew we were beginners. The instructors were great! They were helping everyone individually and by the end of the session I was much more comfortable on a horse and really having fun. I recommend this for anyone with a spare day in Buenos Aires!!!

An amazing, relaxing, invigorating day out of the city! We were greeted with THE BEST empanadas of our entire trip, hot off the grill. After watching a full polo game while learning the key points, we filled our bellies with grilled meats and wine. Then we worked it all off while playing our own game of polo; it's a lot harder than it looks!The staff is excellent and accommodating. An experience not to be missed.

This is a great way to spend a day in Argentina. I was expecting it to be a bit touristy and not really a challenge for me, an experienced rider, but boy was I wrong. After amazing empanadas, a demo game and a delicious barbecue with delicious wine we played a full on game with the other guest, the owner and his wonderful staff. It was fast and fun and full of adrenaline, definitely an experience I will remember for a very long time.

This is something to tell your family and friends about, that made your trip special, unique, and so much fun. It’s not every day one gets to play polo (people look at you in awe when you tell them you did). You “play” at your own pace, yet offered a challenge in the mix. Staff is right there to guide and reassure you all the time. Horses were well behaved, well trained, and responded so wonderfully. It was quite an experience from the first glass of wine of welcome/ to the departing hugs from owner and staff.

If you go to Buenos Aires you can´t miss Polo Day. It is a complete day of fun that, the owner, and his staff will complement with excellent service. They pick you up by your hotel and 50 minutes later you are in a small farm receiving polo lessons, eating a complete " parrilada argentina", watching a real polo game and then comes the best part, you play polo with the rest of the group, in our case for 45min. But that is not all, you rest at a pool before you head back to the hotel. Again, it is the most complete and exciting day in Buenos Aires and if you have herd about golf fever forget about it, you get out of there with extreme polo fever and my sons are already planning our next trip.

We were picked up from our hotel in BA and were driven to the ranch, which is about 45 minutes outside the city. We arrived and were welcomed by an English speaking guide and the owner of the club. We got a tour of the house and grounds and were brought to the field were we sat under the sun and drank wine and watched the 3 groomsmen play against 2 club member and the owner. It was my first time seeing a polo match and it was amazing. Each guest got to throw in the ball to start the match. After the game, which lasted about an hour, we went back to the house and enjoyed a BBQ outside. I am a vegetarian and they were very accommodating. After the meal, we got to get on horses and play our own game of Polo. I was nervous about how I would be on the horse but they were very gentle. We practiced hitting the ball and then proceeded to play a game. It was so much fun! There is a pool but we were so busy with the horses, we didn't use it. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

Argentine Polo Day tour is the highlight of my Buenos Aires Trip. i got picked up around 10 in the morning, arrive at their polo club to start with some Wine and Cheese. Then we went up to the field to see a polo match between their club teams. At the same time sampled more Malbec and really tasty Empanadas. Then we have a very nice outdoor Asaso (BBQ) which is amazing. At the end we have a great session for Polo lessons and played a quick 3 on 3 Polo match. I have no prior horse riding experience and enjoyed the game and lesson so much.

Having never even watched a Polo Match we were not exactly sure what we had signed up for. When we arrived we watched a club Polo Match while dining on fresh Empanadas with beverages. We then sat down to a fabulous Argentine BBQ and more beverages. Later we took instruction on Polo and played a polo match of our own making.Loads of laughter, conversation and new friends were made.

From start to finish, a wonderful day. The staff at Argentina Polo Day were all extremely friendly, courteous, and accommodation. They picked us up at our hotel, drove us to the "estancia" (ranch), and upon arrival, met us with a glass of wine and empanadas that had been freshly cooked in their outdoor brick oven (the best empanadas we've had in Argentina). The explanation of the sport while we watched the first game was thorough and tailored to our knowledge and familiarity. The parrilla lunch was exquisite with Ruben, the owner (he made us feel like family). After lunch, the highlight was climbing on the horses and learning to play with some fantastic instruction.

This is a great family activity if you want a day out of the city. This is a private polo club with about a dozen members who play polo while you watch. The owner cooks up a mean BBQ lunch, you drink a little wine, and then put on the chaps, grab a mallet, and hop on a pony to play polo! It is really quite fun...I have never been on a horse before and I managed to get up to a weak trot and hit the ball around a little. The club members and ranch hands help out and keep things moving. There's a small pool if you want to take a swim. We all had a lot of fun and the staff were great hosts.

We were a group of four (4) college friends (males) looking at our options of things to do (football game or polo). We decided on polo based on the reviews and our expectations were met and then some. We were picked up on time, shuttled to the site where we were welcomed with empanadas and wine. Everything throughout the day was well orchestrated and centered around its participants. I would highly recommend this day long event!
