Learn to play polo in a day and experience the best in Argentinian cuisine with this excellent all-inclusive one-day program available all year round.
Your day begins with freshly made empanadas and a glass of wine as you are treated to an informative talk on the sport and its ponies. After visiting the pony line, you'll learn about the rules and equipment of the game before observing a thrilling live professional match of 4 chukkas.
In between chukkas, you'll watch professional grooms caring for their hoofed charges and learn how ponies are bred and trained for polo in Argentina.
A selection of grilled meats cooked on a traditional "asado" grill is served at lunch, accompanied by premium Argentine wines. Next, guests are invited to spend a little time exploring the beautiful countryside scenery of the estancia either by foot or on horseback.
Novice players are taught how to use shot mallets on foot before taking to the saddle. Alongside a variety of effective shooting techniques, guests will learn how to safely handle a polo pony.
After some mounted practice with mallets, first-timers can test their newly acquired skills in a mini polo match. Experienced instructors are on hand at all times to offer advice and reassure newcomers to the sport as they make their playing debut.
Instruction and play take place on two full-sized high-quality Tifton fields and, in the event of rain, in a full-sized polo arena which can be fully-illuminated for atmospheric night-time matches.

Freshly made empanadas greet your arrival at this laid back but impeccable ranch set in stunning Argentinian countryside just 50 minutes from Buenos Aires.
The spacious 42-hectare grounds are the perfect setting for long walks and bike rides, while a series of well-maintained sandy bridle-paths make exploring the area's rural beauty on horseback an unforgettable experience.
The estancia has three distinct asado areas in which to sip wine and enjoy the exquisite flavours of prime meat, spiced sausages, and fresh vegetables cooked on an Argentinian charcoal barbecue.
When it's time to relax, guests can unwind in the elegant clubhouse or cool off in the swimming pool. Visits to the nearby Museum of Native Arts can be arranged on request, as can rides through the grounds in an open horse-drawn carriage.
Everything at Argentina Day Polo, from the polo lessons to the char on the beef, is executed to the highest professional standard.
Transport to and from the airport is included.
About Argentina Polo Day
Husband and wife team Celia and Ruben launched Argentina Polo Day in 2009. Today they run two Polo Clubs, El Camino Polo Club and La Carona Polo Club, both of which are known for their friendly and relaxed yet professional atmosphere.
The innovative couple pioneered one-day polo experiences in Argentina and were the first to offer night-time matches under the stars in the country's only fully-illuminated polo arena.
Celia and Ruben are proud to offer a polo game every day of the year. Club amenities include a clubhouse, a swimming pool and multiple asado grill areas.
Intensive one-on-one instruction in English and Spanish, strategy classes, and practices of four to six chukkas are on offer to amateur and professional players of all levels. A women-only polo skills development program, Argentina Polo Day for Women, is also available.
Argentina Polo Day has been awarded TripAdvisor’s certificate of excellence 9 years in a row and received the “Marca País Argentina" tourism accolade.
