The Equestrian Sport of Polo. How The Game Has Evolved.

by Adrian Page 10. June 2010 10:07

Equestrian Polo – The Sport Of Kings

Equestrian polo is considered to be the oldest sport in the world – over 2000 years old.

Its roots are well entrenched in Asia as polo is believed to have originated in Persia before playing its way to the Indian sub-continent where the ruling British Raj of the day took to the game. 

In fact they adopted the game and refined it to produce the style of equestrian polo which is played in an increasing number of countries around the world today.

Polo is perceived to be a game for the idol rich, but polo is much more than just a game. It has become an industry creating employment for thousands of people worldwide, and without these people the game would not exist.

The feature I am able to present will reveal how equestrian polo has developed over the years and spread throughout much of the world.

It will also reveal the various facets that make up this fascinating sport and the people involved who enable the game to take to the field of play.

From the dedicated grooms, the equipment manufactures, the people responsible for transporting the valuable polo ponies, the vets, farriers and more.

The equipment used today such as polo mallets are still hand crafted by skilled craftsmen in much the same fashion as they where over 100 years ago.

Although some mallets are produced from manmade fibres the preferred mallet by many polo players are still those made from natural materials - bamboo.

There is much to reveal about equestrian polo that does not meet the eye – a sport known today as ‘the sport of kings’.
