Polo is a horseback ball game, a traditional field sport and a representation of royals. Polo, the legendary game displays a sharp intent of stallions honing their skills, the riders nurturing with each game and taking over chukkers on chukkers.
While the sport of polo is older than recorded history, we know that its origins are in the inspirational relationship between humans and horses, though it was played on elephants and camels too.
This special bond and the unique blending of athletic talents between horse and rider have helped polo evolve into The Sport of Kings.
The origin of polo happened in India, when the British came in they modernised the game and it travelled all around the world.
Indians dominated the sport till the 1900s.
Modern polo has 4 players playing on each side, with 4 chukkers of seven minutes. A player usually keeps 6/8 horses per game as they usually don’t play the horse for more than 7 to 8 minutes.
