The Polo Pony

Our philosophy is t= hat the good polo horse must be ridden every day. When you start to make th= e horse, you must go very slowly. You must relax the horse until he learns = about the polo. It is important to ride and play the horse with long reins,= so the horse is not tense. When the chukka is finished, you should be able= to put the reins on the neck of the horse, and it will walk back to the po= ny line. This is the properly trained horse. The process of making an Argen= tinean polo pony begins within the first 24 hours that the foul is born. Th= is is the time of "imprinting." It is very important to be with the horse a= t this time, because it will remember you and help later when the training = begins. The conformation of a good polo horse is also important. The polo p= ony should have a long neck and a short body. The chest and rump should be = well developed and the withers should measure approximately 155-158 cm from= the ground. For the first three years, the horse is left free. Sometimes, = it will only be visited and touched for 1-2 hours per month. If the horses = are played too early, sometimes they will later develop leg and bone injuri= es around age six. The horse is usually between  5-8 years old before = it is ready to sell, and it must be able to change legs in the canter and t= o be able to stop quickly.
