Buenos Aires is the center of the Polo World. Argentinian polo players make up the top 5, 8 out of the top 10, and 22 out of the top 25. In November and December they come home for the biggest tournament in polo.
The Campo Argentino de Polo is the center of this universe. It is like going to the Kentucky Derby and finding polo.
Each major sponsor has their own pavilion, some seemingly unusual for this setting like Case Tractors.
But now the polo ponies are being prepped and ready for action.
Being Argentina a bit of soccer mentality takes over at the start of the game.
It is time for polo. The players are indeed very skilled, with little delay in their game. The horses as well have been bred just for this sport.
It is so popular it is televised, but for now our afternoon of polo is over.
