HORSE BREEDING AND SALE
ELITE POLO PONIES
OUR BREEDING PROGRAM
What is special about our horses?
We pride ourselves on the quality of our horses that are bred on the farm, that live up to the high standard which is expected of Argentine polo ponies. Combined with the professionalism of our instructors and the hospitality of the Sarli family, La Tarde Polo Club is the ideal place for every element of polo.
Registered as part of the Argentine Polo Breeding association, we supply horses for any price range and from low goal to high goal players. At any given time of the year we have between 50 and 70 horses for different standards of play.
All matters of the sale to the shipping to your country of preference will be smoothly managed by ourselves, using the most prestigious horse export companies in Argentina.
What makes the polo ponies from Argentina so extraordinary?
Here in Argentina the choice and standard of polo pony to purchase from is much higher than anywhere else in the world. Over the years Argentina has developed a polo pony that excels at the game that to how the horses are breed, broken in and then trained.
Here at La Tarde Polo Club we use new rational methods of breaking in our horses and whilst the process is a bit longer the results excel any other techniques.
The process begins as soon as the foul is born, the first steps being to teach the foal how to lose its fear of human beings. One must always remember that the horse is an animal of prey, so one must breakdown its defences in order to create the strong relationship between human and horse that lasts for their entire life.
Horses are herd animals and so we keep them in herds until they are a few years old. The process of first riding the horse is very slow, first placing the saddle and then adding weights so eventually the horses does not notice the weight of any player.
TRAINING AND SALE
When do our ponies start to play?
Our ponies then begin to start playing when they are about four and a half years old and are ready to sell once they are six years old. We only feel it suitable to sell our breed horses once they have played two summer seasons in Argentina, so that our clients purchase a polo pony that has had enough play time and contact experience to have learnt all they need to know about the game ready for any player to take over.
