I packed my bags and flew from California to be steeped in countryside life, with horses, fresh air and open fields. Learning to play polo was one of the primary reasons, of course--but I knew visiting during the winter off season would be slightly more challenging for this. Honestly, I didn't mind at all--I craved quiet time and peace here,... More

The host, Federico Cendoya has a very nice place to learn and play polo, with a very good grass field and an arena field for rainy days. There is a wooden horse too to practice the swing. Among the polo I have a very good stay enjoying "asados" and "picadas".

I chose El Venado after a bit of research as I liked the email responses I was getting directly from the owner Fede. My first impression was borne out by my week at El Venado - a wonderful welcome from Fede and Inés, generous meals and I even had my wine preferences consulted! As a beginner, I benefitted from being... More

El Venado is a Lovely estancia with a family feel to it, thanks to the hospitality and warmth of owners Federico and Ines. Federico & team's experience and patience enable a steep polo Learning curve. In only 3 lessons I went from no experience to managing to hit a ball in canter. It is really a great Experience!

I came to el Venado for several reasons: to escape city life, to immerse myself in a Spanish-speaking culture, and to learn polo for fun. Having never mounted a horse or wielded a mallet before (they say having ski or hockey experience helps) and being a lefty (polo is exclusively a right-handed sport as I discovered shortly after booking my...

I went to El Venado not knowing too much about it but was recommended by a friend. After being there I cannot recommend it enough, it helped me a great deal to learn and improve my game. I had the pleasure of great company, beautiful locale, variety of horses (and Chukkers) for all skill levels! Stayed there for about 3... More

I was so excited to come to El Venado that I ended up having high expectations! However, without any efforts Federico, Ines, Julian and the rest of their team exceeded them easily. I felt part of their family during the whole 15 days of our stay. I also met great some great guests I'm going to meet again in the... More

I had an amazing time at El Venado! I recommend this place to anyone considering a polo vacation. Former pro polo player Federico “Fede” Cendoyo owns this beautiful and peaceful estancia, which has been in his family for generations. Fede, his wife Ines, his manager Stephi, and his entire staff have created a unique polo school that feels more like... More

When I booked my stay at El Venado, at the suggestion of a friend, I planned to stay for a week. My experience was so good that I returned the following week (after a short stay in Buenos Aires to watch the Argentine Open). The weather permitted polo almost every day and I settled into a magical rhythm of riding,... More
