First time to Argentina and after a week in BA, we took a car to Puesto Viejo for some time in the country. Had always wanted to experience an estancia and see a little Polo firsthand. PV was truly beautiful, and given that it was off season, the owners took us for a long ride around the property to see... More

We were three 50 ish gals from LA and Seattle celebrating the new year in Argentina and because one of us had played polo and worked as a groom in Santa Barbara in her youth we wanted to end our visit with a Polo Day! This excursion met and exceeded all of our expectations! We were picked up from our... More

My group consisted of 2 people that had basically no horse riding experience (1 not being the sports type) and a person with polo playing experience. Gaston was great in handling the different polo experience/athletic experience levels between the 3 of us. We got to see part of a tournament match, which helped the non polo playing members see what... More

We loved our time at Puesto Viejo with Gaston. The place is incredibly beautiful, and the attention given to us was really perfect. The polo lessons were great, Gaston was very attentive and a very good teacher. Despite never having done any polo, and not been on a horse for over 10 years, we managed to hit the ball trotting...

So we did a day trip to do the polo day and it was so fun! It was a Saturday and it was very little traffic, so it took one hour from Teatro Colon to the estancia, which was perfect. We were super luck with the weather, it was sunny and nice all day. The asado was fantastic, I particularly... More

We stayed at the estancia for 4 days and we are now leaving with a new love for polo even though we had hardly played before. In these 4 days we had a lesson with Gaston every morning where he taught us the basic skills you need. In the afternoon we would play chukkas with some of the other staff... More

From the food, to the attentive polo lesson from Gaston, to the beers with the owners--- this seamless and worry free trip from BA was incredible. Only 1 hour via private car (included) lands you at a breathtaking estate with well cared for horses and a wonderful main house where you are treated warmly and cared for as if you... More

We arrived in the morning and were very soon starting our lesson with Gaston, who was a brilliant teacher. After a delicious lunch we had another lesson before playing a mini chukka with the other guests. It couldn't have been a better day and I only wish I could have stayed longer.

This was a good day out for all of us. We didn't have much experience of playing polo (and some in our group had not much experience of riding horses) but that didn't seem to bother the team at Puesto Viejo much. Gaston was a really good teacher and with his encouragement we were all soon were able to hit... More

Argentine horses, handsome gauchos, beautiful grounds, fancy food with a vegetarian option and the most fun you could have on the Pampas. Gaston, the host and our instructor was easy to get in touch with. He and the rest of the staff made it such a fun, relaxed, well organise and unique experience. We had ridden before, but it was...
