The polo clinic day focuses on polo practice. Anybody who is interested in a first experience of this fascinating sport can sign up, even if you do not know how to ride a horse. It is well suited for individual lessons, families, a group of friends and even business groups.


At La Sofia Polo Club we want to make sure that our guests enjoy an unparalleled, passionate, customized and friendly polo experience guided by Marcos Antín Güiraldes, an experienced professional polo player who has dedicated all his life to playing, teaching polo and to breeding polo ponies. Marcos is also one of the first by AAP (Argentine Polo Association) certified Polo Instructors (R#542013).

Activity Guide

Polo action

A polo day at La Sofia, a unique experience: Silke and Marcos give a warm welcome to their guests at the beginning of the polo day, an unforgettable experience. Marcos starts out with an introduction to the sport, followed by a polo driving range on the wooden horse to practice the basic strokes and positions.

A typical Argentine barbecue will be prepared for lunch, so the guests can savor our food and taste the wines of our private cellar. After lunch and some relaxing at the pool or at some shady corner on the estancia, the participants take a lesson of stick and ball (on horseback). Depending on the skills and abilities of the participants we can also organize a practice chukker.

At the end of the day, tea and house specialties will be served on the terrace with views of the polo field.

Food and drinks: Includes barbecue lunch- homemade empanadas, Chorizo (Argentine sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), various meat cuts, and salads usually from our organic vegetable garden and tea with specialties of the house in the afternoon. Should you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know, when making your reservation.

Beyond Polo

The view and the silence of the countryside, the whisper of the leaves, the sound of the cicadas, the neighing and galloping of the horses, the singing of the birds… La Sofia is a perfect place to relax and enjoy, get a massage, take a ride on a bike or read a book under a tree.
