The sport of polo
Polo, one of the oldest equestrian sports in the world – also referred to as “The Game of Kings”– is full of thrills, teamwork, technique, and true sportsmanship. Polo originated for both sport and training, allowing nomadic warriors in Central Asia to practice their skills on horseback. The first game on American soil occurred in 1876 at a field in Westchester County, and its popularity quickly spread – leading eventually to the creation of the USPA in 1890.
