An illustrious and storied history accompanies the sport of polo, spanning continents, cultures and classes. One of the world’s oldest team sports, it evolved from the training of cavalry units in Asia. Referred to as the “sport of kings,” it is no surprise that polo is a favorite among the British royal family and counts Winston Churchill and General Patton among its devoted followers. However, delving deeper into polo’s heritage, one learns of the diverse community that has made it a global pastime.
Polo Heritage guides the reader on a journey from Mongolia to Mexico, from Barbados to Pakistan, and inside the most prestigious tournaments on grass, sand or snow. Traverse the historic polo grounds in India, become immersed in the high society of British polo, learn about the Argentinian polo culture that has produced some of the best polo families in the world. An introduction by legendary polo player Nacho Figueras is accompanied by Aline Coquelle’s original photography offering a modern, authentic perspective on the spirit of polo.
