The fame of this sport originates in the traditional customs of the oligarchy and the excellent quality of the horses of the Pampas. The abilities of the horsemen through the years have placed Argentina in an indisputable position: it has been the world champion since 1949 all along.
Even though it is a high-class sport, it has never ceased to have its place of privilege and its followers. The Polo Open, which is the target of players around the globe, has taken place for a hundred years. Its venue is the Campo Argentino de Polo, and the season is August to December.
