What to expect
After pickup from your Buenos Aires hotel, set out on the scenic journey to the Puesto Viejo Estancia, set amid the beautiful countryside of the Argentine pampas. Begin your experience with a briefing and coffee break in the clubhouse, then head down to the polo field for your first lesson. Depending on your riding level and previous experience, you will be matched with a suitable horse and even if you’ve never ridden before, you’ll soon master the basics of steering your horse and swinging the taco (polo mallet). After working up a sweat, tuck into a traditional ‘asado’ BBQ lunch, accompanied by Argentine Malbec wine. Enjoy some free time to relax, cycle around the ranch, or swim in the infinity pool, before watching a thrilling live polo match (depending on match schedules). Finally, saddle up for your second polo lesson and put your skills to the test in a fun polo match. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your Buenos Aires hotel.

I spend an amazing day in the estancia Puesto Viejo! I learned to ride horses on very userfriendly horses and i didn't even fall down. My first time riding horses and i managed without a problem. Of course the instructor Julito was an incredible teacher and gave my girlfriend and me an unforgetable polo experience. I even got to watch a Polo game between the Puesto Viejo team and another called Campolindo, very intense and captivating sport!
Thanks a lot, Julito es un crack

Great place, great fun
My first visit to Puesto Viejo was at the recommendation of a friend. It was so enjoyable that I returned six months later for another visit. A short trip from the airport, it is a great place to focus on your polo skills, improve your game, and enjoy authentic Argentine food, hospitality and an easy-going lifestyle. I traveled with a non-polo friend who could enjoy Puesto Viejo’s other offerings – biking, pool, and trail riding. Given the proximity to Buenos Aires, we could make a day trip to the city – with the fine assistance of hotel’s efficient and friendly staff. If you are looking to experience polo or take in a few days of country life while visiting BA or heading back from wine country, then then Puesto Viejo is a great option. The proprietors and staff make every effort to ensure your enjoyment and comfort. I encourage you to give it a try.

Polo experience
Jan 2019 • Couples
We went for a try out at polo when in Argentina. It was fantastic. Julio the instructor is just the best as he makes everything so simple and easy. The ponies are all very good at their job and we felt 100% safe riding around on strange horses to us. The hotel serves a fantastic lunch which is way too much food but you still eat it and the hotel swimming pool area is ideal just to relax between riding sessions. First class highly recommend.

From a polo day at Puesto Viejo to playing 8 goal tournaments
I turned up for a polo day in 2017, never risen a horse, never swung a polo mallet... I was completely and utterly hooked from the moment I got on the horse. Combining my love of animals with my other passion, sport... it was a match made in heaven.

My instructor for the day was Julio in 2017, who has literally taking me from zero to where I am today. I have been back 3 times since and have have just finished a 3 1/2 month stint, playing 4 goal, 6 goal and 8 goal tournaments. We managed to win 2 tournaments. Julio has been absolutely instrumental in my progress. Not only is he a great teacher but an animal on the field!

I would highly recommend Puesto Viejo for anyone. Beginners to seasoned professionals. The fields are incredible, the facilities are amazing and the service is excellent. Jermey and Lianna should be very proud of what they have created.

A fantastic day in Puesto Viejo! Wasn’t far from Buenos Aires which allowed me to make the most if the day! Julio, the instructor, was fabulous, i loved his energy!! Super interesting and fun to discover with him the polo ponies and the basics of the game. The property is stunning, add to that the birds, the food... Forget English riding: this is the real deal and this is the place to discover it! Can only recommend.

Highly recommended!!
Me and my friend Oscar had a great Polo day in Puesto Viejo with instructor Pablo Fazzari. Starting from literally zero experience of horse riding, we managed to gallop and play easily polo at the end of the day!
We had 1 hour horse riding crash course in the morning - the ranch is very well maintained : golf course-like grass, huge spaces, horses incredibly well trained and docile.
We had a classical argentinian lunch in the patio - relaxing atmosphere and then in the afternoon 2 hours of polo training - final game included.
Cakes and snacks are served before and after the training :)
At the end of the day you will be very well satisfied I can guarantee you!
Best experience so far in Argentina
