Wonderful day trip to the countryside to learn how to ride a horse and play polo. Julio, our talented instructor, catered to our individual skill level and to the weather we went on a rainy day and had a fantastic time. Julio is very knowledgable about the history of the sport and extremely engaging. Lunch was lovely -- well-prepared with fresh ingredients. Highly recommended excursion outside of Buenos Aires if you have the time. Private transfers to/from our hotel didn't hurt.
This activity exceeded my expectations. I had never played polo before and knew very little about it and my experience riding a horse is about beginner/average. Julio was an amazing teacher and we had great fun playing polo and enjoying the beautiful grounds at Puesto Viejo Estancia. The hospitality was excellent - everyone so friendly, and the served a delicious steak lunch and appetizers before and after the polo experience. This was one of the highlights of our South America trip.
Great experience overall but we are experienced riders and found it really hard to enjoy the game because our poor ponies were so quiet and slow. I understand that they need to be quiet for inexperienced riders and would not have expected to be given valuable polo ponies of course. Our instructor was great, the food was nice, the grounds are lovely. We would return. We recommend.
