What to Expect
After pickup from your Buenos Aires hotel, set out on the scenic journey to the Puesto Viejo Estancia, set amid the beautiful countryside of the Argentine pampas. Begin your experience with a briefing and coffee break in the clubhouse, then head down to the polo field for your first lesson. Depending on your riding level and previous experience, you will be matched with a suitable horse and even if you’ve never ridden before, you’ll soon master the basics of steering your horse and swinging the taco (polo mallet). After working up a sweat, tuck into a traditional ‘asado’ BBQ lunch, accompanied by Argentine Malbec wine. Enjoy some free time to relax, cycle around the ranch, or swim in the infinity pool, before watching a thrilling live polo match (depending on match schedules). Finally, saddle up for your second polo lesson and put your skills to the test in a fun polo match. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your Buenos Aires hotel.
