La Sofía Polo Day

A Day in the countryside with Polo Clinic for beginners: At La Sofia Polo Club we want to make sure that our guests enjoy an unparalleled, passionate, customized and friendly polo experience guided by Marcos Antín Güiraldes (cv), an experienced professional polo player who has dedicated all his life to playing and teaching polo as well as to breeding polo ponies..
The polo clinic day focuses on polo practice. Anybody who is interested in a first experience of this fascinating sport can sign up, even if you do not know how to ride a horse. It is well suited for individual lessons, families, a group of friends and even business groups..
A polo day at La Sofia, a unique experience: Silke and Marcos give a warm welcome to their guests at the beginning of the polo day, an unforgettable experience. Marcos starts out with an introduction to the sport, followed by a polo driving range on the wooden horse to practice the basic strokes and positions..
A typical Argentine barbecue will be prepared for lunch, so the guests can savor our food and taste the wines of our private cellar. After lunch and some relaxing at the pool or at some shady corner on the estancia, the participants take a lesson of stick and ball (on horseback). Depending on the skills and abilities of the participants we can also organize a practice chukker.
At the end of the day, tea and house specialties will be served on the terrace with views of the polo field.
Please note: If you wish to participate in a more intense polo practice, we also offer programs of any duration between two days and several weeks. These programs include accommodation and full board at La Sofia, if required. Or you can also stay in beautiful close-by Areco.
