Polo at Estancia Los Potreros


Hosted by Kevin and Louisa Begg, Estancia Los Potreros has been welcoming travellers and horse enthusiasts for over 10 years, running first class horseback riding holidays from the family home in the beautiful ‘Sierras Chicas’ in the province of Córdoba, Argentina. World renowned for fabulous hospitality, outstanding horses and the most beautiful scenery, the estancia has a long history with polo, as part of the estancia was once owned by Lewis Lacey, one of the first ever 10 goal handicapped players, and one of the few people to have ever played polo for both England and Argentina.


For many years the Begg family have delighted in introducing guests to polo in a fun and friendly environment as part of their Argentine holiday.  Fun, fast and exciting, polo is a competitive team sport that combines good horsemanship with team tactics and ball skills. Often too expensive or inaccessible to try at home, the different options at Los Potreros allow you to try this fabulous game in a truly unique environment, whilst not breaking the bank at the same time. Argentina has arguably the best polo players in the world and so what better place to start? If you have never tried it, we should warn you that polo is highly addictive, and it may be the start of an extremely expensive habit . . .


For anyone staying a week at the estancia there is always the chance to try polo in one of our fun and informal weekly sessions. However, for 2011, the estancia is pleased to offer a number of different options for those wishing to take it a little bit further. Whether you are a true polo enthusiast, or simply have always wanted to try out this exciting sport but don’t know where to start, the estancia has something for everyone. For any further details or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
