‘The sport of Kings’ is one of the world’s oldest. In the ancient world polo was a popular passtime of the Persian elite. In Medieval times polo spread to the Indian subcontinent and even as far as China.
During the British occupation of India, British army officers picked up the sport and took it back in the UK where soon it became popular among the wealthy of the western world, rules were formalised and international cups were organised.
Late 19th century British settlers first played the sport in Argentina where the strong horse culture soon forged the world’s greatest players and polo pony breeders. With the decline of horsepower in during the 20th century in many traditional ranching nations, Argentina remains the polo superpower today with the highest handicapped players in the world.
Whether watching or playing polo, remember that the teams change ends after each goal!
