Polo Break came recommended through a friend in Buenos Aires. Nacho picked us up and took us to a traditional polo club just outside the city. Although we were mixed ability riders, Nacho knew how well to handle us all very well! Afterwards, we had lunch at the club and saw a polo match in the afternoon. A great polo experience we thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the city for a few days.

I went with my brother and mates last year to a great polo match here in Buenos Aires and now I've got the bug. This time I booked 2 classes with Polo Break and Nacho was a brilliant polo teacher. He's very patient and his English and knowledge of polo is excellent. I thoroughly recommend getting on a horse and trying this cool sport, had a blast!

My wife and I had a blast with Polo Break during a trip to Buenos Aires. She played in college and was excited to dust off her skills, while I was learning the game for the first time using what would generously be called intermediate ridding ability.

We were picked up at our hotel downtown by our instructor in a Chevy Silverado V8 and headed out to the official military polo grounds after cruising by the Palermo Polo Grounds. It was a sign of good things to come.

Arriving at the Military polo grounds, we found that the vehicle's own fine, rare pedigree was easily outmatched by the Polo Break ponies, which were bred by our instructor and loaned to the official Argentine military team. The horses were game, turned on a dime, and accelerated at an instant, which made it exhilarating.

We had a blast practicing on the pristine grounds all afternoon, learning shots, dribbling around, playing the Sport of Kings in the country that does it best. Our instructor Nacho was a great teacher as he's been involved with the game all his life, from breeding to playing internationally in the US and Europe. Beyond that, he and the Polo Break crew are great people and we enjoyed having beers and mates with them after the lesson. Afterwards he sent us a ton of pictures and great recommendations for fun in Buenos Aires.

The experience couldn't have been better. Everything about it was unique and Nacho was a flawless host and master teacher.

I have been to a number of polo matches before but credit where credit is due, Polo Break really enhances the whole experience. Firstly, you go with a group of like minded people, generally with little experience of polo. Charlene quickly rectifies this with a fact sheet about the game and what to look out for. She was always on hand to answer any questions and more importantly for most able to gain access to the VIP and sponsor tents for drinks with the Argentine polo community !!
A very special day with the added bonus of an England victory over Argentina.

I went alone with POLO BREAK to experience their HIPPODROME GUIDED TOUR and it was a great 3 hours spent! The guides take you through all the details of the sport, from its history and game rules to knowing what to look for when chosing a winning horse. The group was given the opportunity to try our luck and make a bet. To my surprise, I managed to bet on the horse that came first!! The thrill and the adrenaline was spectacular and truely recommend this tour to anyone who is willing to have a little fun.

I went to the Hippodrome with Polo Break and I loved it!. Im a local and I had never gone there in my life as I was not really motivated but I heard about an afternoon out to this trip with explanations, buying tickets to bet for the best horses and races plus a coffee in the end, it was a lot of fun! and I learnt about something typical from here with great explanations about what was going on by Charlene and Santiago, they really know how to make the experience enjoyeable.Highly recommended!

Polobreak took me to a pologame in Hurlingham. It was a really nice match to see, with a good explanation of the guide. Afterward there were some snacks and you good meet the polo players. It was a really nice day at the campo!

I had a great experience at the Palermo Polo court which is located in the middle of Buenos Aires and sourrounded by a beautiful skyline. If you want to do something typical "argentino" go and see a Polo game with Polo Break! The guide explains the rules before the game so that you have an enjoyable time watching it, and you may even get close to the players and horses after the game. All in all an experience that you shouldn't miss!
