Clients pushed their bodies and minds beyond what they believed was possible, proving that determination and perseverance could lead to remarkable accomplishments.

As the sun set over Polo Valley, the celebrations continued with an unforgettable Asado by the lake, symbolising the bonds formed during this transformative experience.

These six clients, with little to no prior experience in polo, embraced the opportunity to push their limits, both physically and mentally, to emerge as skilled polo players in a whirlwind training programme.
