Itinerary for Sierra Chicas Country Polo Clinics



Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

After a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs, we take the horses down to the polo ground. A short session on the ground covers the skills and tactics that are going to be focused on that day, and then we mount our polo ponies for a short ‘stick and ball’ session, followed by some chukkas. Back to the estancia for lunch, a siesta and maybe a swim in the pool, followed by a sunset ride out into the beautiful Sierras Chicas.
A candlelit dinner accompanies the tales of the day, that get longer as the week goes on! The week culminates in an in-house tournament, often joined by players from the local area.

We hope to prepare for a mini tournament at the end of the week when local players may visit, or we go to the village and "play away" representing the estancia in the team colors. All of this takes place in a beautiful setting allowing you to explore the hills and a traditional way of life.

We provide you with polo gear during your stay, however we strongly recommend that you bring your own boots, gloves and helmet to guarantee a comfortable fit.

Our success is that even though accomplished players have their contacts, there is a larger market for riders who have always fancied a "go" at polo. We offer a holiday that far exceeds the average polo estancia - adventure in a beautiful landscape, excellent horses and all within a real country environment. We are not swanky about polo but it would be wrong to underrate our farmers polo.

A "country polo" week with an in-house tournament will take place several times a year and guests are welcome.

This concentrated week of polo can be arranged at most times of the year with a minimum of 4 players. Professional polo tuition is also available.

The itinerary is flexible and subject to change. *It should be noted that polo is weather dependent. If the ground is too wet to play, an alternative ride will be offered and where possible the sessions will be made up during the week by playing twice per day.
