Did you know that football is the national sport in Argentina? Of course. But can you believe that polo is as important as football in the country?
Last weekend took place one of Argentina's leading polo events in Autumn : the Copa de las Naciones International Series. And more than the competition itself, the show makes the event definitely worth going. Horse lovers, you will be thrilled! Sports lovers too!
During about an hour, the 8 opponents (4 for each team) try to score as much as possible. The game is so intense that the riders need to change their horses every 10min!
The beauty of the sport is related to the elitism of the discipline. More than the strength of the horses and the speed of the movements of the riders, you will notice that they leave nothing to chance, from the horse's tail braid to the players' outfit, including the perfect aspect of the ground at the beginning of the game.
Tickets from 50$
The event takes place in Palermo in front of the Hippodrome
